Good recipe fixed as directed the first time. TOTAL TIME should be changed to 45 MIN to include the rice (45 minutes). Instead of frying the carrots and snow peas; I cooked them in boiling water in a sauce pan. The carrots go into boiling water first, after three minutes add the snow peas and allow them to cook only 2 minutes more. I find the vegetables cooked this way more enjoyable as they do not "wilt" and they retain more crispness. I still used the pineapple chunks but only cut them in half. Having retained distinct shapes of ingredients makes the dish more interesting and less mushy. Also by baking the chicken; pieces instead of frying; makes the chicken less tough. This will increase the prep time slightly but it is worth the effort, raises the score to a 5-star level and still uses the same amount of Land-O-Lakes butter.
