Sunwhite® White Medium-Grain Calrose Rice

Sunwhite® White Medium-Grain Calrose Rice

Sunwhite® Calrose Rice is an oval medium-grain white rice known for its quality and taste. When cooked, Calrose rice becomes soft and tender with a tendency to stick together due to its succulent grains, allowing it to retain its moisture. Sunwhite® Calrose Rice is used in dishes that require a bit more creaminess as well as a side dish to compliment almost every meal. Its versatility means that it can be used in everything from starters and soups to desserts. For best results, rinse this rice with cold water. Drain well before cooking. All rice is naturally gluten-free. 4kg and 9kg packages are available in Jordan only.

  • In a medium saucepan, add all of the ingredients for the sauce except for the water and cornstarch. Whisk together and bring to a boil.

  • In a small bowl, mix together the water and 1 tablespoon cornstarch. Add to the pan, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Your sauce should thicken as it simmers.

  • Remove it from the heat and set it aside while you make your chicken.

  • Add the chicken, cornstarch and salt and pepper to a bag and shake to coat.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet and add the chicken. Cook over medium-high heat for about 7 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through.

  • Add additional olive oil if the chicken begins to stick to the pan.

  • Add the chopped bell peppers and onion to the pan and stir to combine. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until the veggies are just barely tender.

  • Add the pineapple chunks to the pan.

  • Pour the sauce into the pan. Stir to combine.
