Preparation: Boil the kettle. Prepare all ingredients as indicated above.
Coconut rice: Place a pot with boiling water (see quantity above) and coconut milk on medium-high heat. Bring to the boil and add the rice with a pinch of salt. Boil for 10-12 minutes until cooked, but with a slight bite. Drain and keep warm.
Pineapple: Use a sharp knife to remove the ends and cut down the sides to remove the skin. Then cut in half and slice (5mm). Sprinkle over the chilli flakes.

Chicken: Place a pan on medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, add to the hot pan and cook for 5 minutes until lightly golden and cooked through. In the last 30 seconds of cooking, add the sauce and mix through.
