  1. Place bacon in a wok or large skillet; cook and stir over medium-high heat until crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and reserve bacon drippings in the wok. Cook and stir shallots in bacon drippings over medium-high heat until fragrant and light brown, 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Stir chicken into shallots and cook without stirring until browned on one side, 45 seconds to 1 minute; stir. Continue cooking until chicken is browned, about 1 minute. Add 2 teaspoons curry powder; stir until chicken is coated.
  3. Make a well in the center of chicken and pour oil into center of the well; add egg yolks. Cook and stir egg yolks until set, 1 to 2 minutes. Add rice and stir, breaking up rice.
  4. Mix chile pepper, cilantro, soy sauce, remaining 2 teaspoons curry powder, fish sauce, and sugar into rice mixture; add shrimp and cook until shrimp is cooked through and pink, about 2 minutes. Fold pineapple, green onions, and bacon into rice mixture.


  • Use fresh pineapple when available. Hollow out pineapple and serve it in the shell. Using day old cold rice from the fridge will work best. You can add most frozen vegetables to this for added goodness. It also works well with brown rice.

I just didn't like this at all. To much curry made it hot and the other flavors were lost. I would reduce the curry by 1/2 at least (you can always add more if you like) and I like curry. Anyw...

We have really come to love this meal! Like any good cook, I've added my own twists as I've made it each time. I skip the shrimp since my wife isn't a big fan and double the chicken, BUT... I us...

This was tasty and straight forward. I added chopped vegis to round it out. If you love curry you will definitely love this. Thanks for sharing!

My husband said this tasted like something you would get at a restaurant. We both loved it.

I left out the peppers and fish sauce (didn't have any on hand) and thought it was really good. My only advice is to prep all the ingredients before starting to cook. Thanks for the great recipe...

Yes this is amazing! My family gobbled it up. I have served this dish for several dinner parties and our guests have realllllly enjoyed this dish. This is going to be our Christmas dinner meal b...

UPDATE: I am changing my review from 4 to 5. I made this again. In the interest of disclosure, this time, I did not use shrimp, cilantro, or the red Thai chili. The first time, I increased the b...

I have made this recipe multiple times now and I love it. My husband is Celiac so this recipe works really well for us since all I have to substitute is the soy sauce for gluten free soy sauce. ...

Loved it and my family raved over it. My daughter who doesn't cook much thought it was so easy to make.....I prepped everything before hand and it was quick and easy that way
