Hawaiian Delight

For some reason I've been in the mood for Hawaiian stuff.  Call me crazy.  It's OK.  I don't mind.  Anyway here's what I made.  First, 

Slow Cooker Coconut Sweet Potatoes
 1/3 cup brown sugar
(I made this with white sugar and 1 Tbsp molasses. Mix well to get this)
Peel and dice 2 lbs of Sweet Potatoes.  Place in crock pot.

 Cover with brown sugar, 1/4 cup butter melted, 1/4 cup coconut, and 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4.
When finished stir in 1/4 tsp vanilla and 1/4 tsp coconut extract.

Toast 1/2 cup coconut in oven to sprinkle on top.


Hawaiian Delight
Heat your pressure cooker on the stovetop with 2 Tbsp olive oil.
Brown 6-8 chicken tenders
Add 1 cup white basmati rice
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
Cover and bring to pressure.  Pressure at second ring for 5 minutes.  Drop pressure with cold water around rim of pot.

Add 3/4 cups sour cream
2 stalks celery chopped
1/2 bell pepper diced
1 bunch green onions chopped
2 cups canned pineapple chunks drained

Stir to mix and serve over bed of chow mein noodles, topped with toasted coconut.
A little Island Fare in the middle of the desert!
