Caribbean Chicken Rice

This is a recipe from my friend Yvonne called "Caribbean Chicken Rice". It is soooooooo yummy!

1 package saffron rice
2 1/2 cups water
2 TBS butter or margarine
1 bunch of green onions chopped into small pieces (include the green stems)
1/4 cup of red and green peppers diced into small pieces
1/4 cup of chopped sweet onions
1 small can of chunky or tidbit pineapples - drained
1/4 c coconut shreds
Cayenne pepper (season to taste)
1 clove of garlic
1 lb of browned chicken strips
or 1 lb of medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

Combine all of your ingredients in a 2 quart saucepan and bring to a boil stirring thoroughly. Reduce heat, cover and simmer over low heat for 25 - 30 minutes, or until all liquid has been absorbed. Remove from heat, stir and let stand covered for 5 minutes. Stir and serve.
