    Now, cut the chicken breasts into strips, and dice the ginger and garlic into small pieces. Put some olive oil in a frying pan and stir fry the garlic and ginger until they achieve a light brown colour. Mix in some minced lemon grass stalk and stir the ingredients thoroughly. Add in the chicken strips and stir fry until they are cooked. Finally, add a splash of soy sauce for enhanced taste and colour.

    Next, add boiled rice to the mixture and continue to stir. Break up the rice and use the stirrer to create a well in the middle of the rice so you can see the bottom of the pan. Now, crack an egg into the well, and stir carefully with a pair of Chinese chopsticks. Slowly mix it with the rice as it cooks; then, allow the egg to absorb into the rice thoroughly by giving it a good mix.

    Once the egg is fully cooked, add pineapple chunks (large or small) to the mixture. Garnish the rice with chopped spring onions and cashew nuts. You may also choose to add some salt and pepper, and a dash of sesame oil and chilli sauce. Remove the mixture after turning off the heat, take it out onto a large platter, and serve to your guests.
