A couple of weeks ago, I was in a situation I oftentimes find myself in: plenty of food in the fridge (in this case Memorial Day cookout leftovers) but I didn’t want to eat it. We’d had leftovers from our cookout for a couple days in a row and I was desperate for something different. I realized I had rice, two eggs, a pineapple that needed to be eaten stat and some chicken sausage. I figured I could use all of those things to throw together a meal. I thought that if it turned out to be tasty, I’d share it here on the blog. Y’all. This was so dang good. I made it again a few days ago just to make sure it was as good as I remembered. It was. Add this pineapple chicken fried rice to your “30 minute dinner” arsenal, stat!
