We had a great time studying the Pacific Islands! Mom and Daughter both learned a lot! We plan to celebrate all of our vicarious travel with a meal that attempts to be somewhat authentic to the region studied. For the Pacific Islands we made Hawaiian Coconut Chicken and Rice! This recipe was pretty easy, and although I was worried that the extended cooking time would dry out the chicken, it didn’t. Husband and Daughter both enjoyed it – even though it combined fruit with meat!

We used whole grain rice, fresh pinapple, and not the whole box of spinach. I was afraid that all of the spinach might be off putting…but in the coconut milk it was quite good!
