Delicious - served with Jerk Chicken and Sweet Potato Wedges (CL 9/97). Great flavor, cool and kind of sweet, nice balance for Jerk Chicken.

Fantastic. I served this with the jerk-style chicken, with grilled vegetables, lime wedges and extra dried pineapple on the side. I used Arborio rice which is short-grain and it worked wonderfully; the starch makes it really creamy. I can't stand cilantro so I omitted it and unfortunately I ran out of green onions but it would be amazing with green onions added in! I thought it was a little sweet (maybe due to not having the extra ingredients) which went well with the chicken but I might decrease the pineapple a little bit next time and up the salt&pepper.

I also served this with the jerk-style chicken. I used brown long grain rice and it took a little longer to cook, about 50 minutes. The chicken and rice went so well together, perfect for a warm summer spring day.

I made this rice the other day & loved it. I didn't have enough dried pineapples to double the recipe, so I substituted with dried papaya & mangos. It was still delicious. I loved it so much & so did the husband & kids. They are really picky when it comes to their food, but they loved this one. They are all asking me when am i going to do this one again!!!
