The Tumeric Honey Rice is my recipe



  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 15 ounce can sliced pineapple in its own juice, reserve juice
  • 1/2 green pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 red pepper, sliced
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Chinese 5 spice powder
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 tsp salt

Turmeric Honey Rice

electric pressure cooker

  • 2 cups Jasmine Rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 3 TBS Honey
  • 2 tsp sea salt

stove top:

  • 2 cups Jasmine Rice
  • 4 cups water (1 1/2 cups at over 3,000 ft)
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 3 TBS honey
  • 2 tsp salt


  • Place chicken breasts in greased 4 quart slow cooker
  • Add two slices of pineapple on top of each piece of chicken. If there are more pieces of pineapple in the can put them off to the side (My can of pineapple was chunks so I just sprinkled them about.)
  • Place red and green pepper slices evenly over all of the pieces of chicken (I only had green peppers ’cause that is what we grow on the Farm)
  • Sprinkle the cinnamon, 5 Spice, crushed red pepper and salt over the top of the chicken, peppers and pineapple.
  • Finally, pour 1/4 cup of reserved pineapple juice over the top.
  • Cook on high for 2 1/2 – 3 hours or on low for 5 – 6 hours. (I chose the low option)
