Lazy Hawaiian Ham Dinner

I love Asian/Polynesian food but am lazy.  Hawaiian Ham Dinner satisfies both sides of me.  This dinner seems fancy but is actually quick and easy — not to mention tasty and pretty healthy.

Hawaiian Ham Dinner


Hawaiian Ham

  • Pam Non-Stick Spray
  • Sliced Ham (I get mine from the deli)
  • Kikkoman Teriyaki Sauce
  • Dole Pineapple Chunks
  • Minute Rice Ready-to-Serve Rice
  • Canned Green Beans (or other vegetable)

Makes variable servings in 7-10 minutes.


I buy extra sliced ham from the deli to chop up and freeze for later Ham, Cheese, & Rice Casserole dinners.

Dole offers pineapple chunks in jars, fruit cups, and cans.  I keep the fruit cups on hand all the time as a healthy snack and occasionally buy the jars or cans when they have coupons.

Minute Rice offers microwavable rice in single-serving cups (ready in just 1 minute) and 2-serving bowls (ready in 2 minutes).  We reduce white starch servings so we get twice as many servings as listed on the package.  They offer long grain white rice and a variety of other flavors (depending on store availability).  Feel free to substitute stove top instant Minute Rice or regular rice.

Pam, Kikkoman, Dole, and Minute Rice occasionally offer coupons online (check and the brand websites).

NOTE: I get no commission for my brand recommendations.
I’m just passing along useful info.


  • Spray toaster oven pan with Pam.  I also use foil to avoid mess.
  • Place ham on pan and drizzle with Teriyaki sauce.
  • Bake at 350°F until warm (ham is already cooked), about 3-5 minutes if fresh or 5-7 minutes if frozen.
  • Add pineapple chunks and drizzle with more Teriyaki sauce.
  • Cook until pineapple is warm, another minute or two.
  • Microwave green beans until warm, a minute or so.
  • Microwave Minute Rice Ready-to-Serve Rice for 1 minute (I drizzle with a little water to moisten).
  • Serve.


I recommend serving Hawaiian Ham Dinner with a bowl of pineapple for dessert.


I just prepare enough for one meal of Hawaiian Ham Dinner.  But if you have leftovers, they should be moist and microwave well.
