pineapple pumpkin seed chicken

So I've been inspired by the pumpkin seeds....

1 1/2 lbs chicken, chopped
3/4 cup pineapple, fresh and chopped
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tbs fish sauce
2 cloves garlic, pressed
2 tbs coconut oil
salt to taste

1. In a food processor or blender, blend pineapple and pumpkin seeds
2. Combine soy sauce, fish sauce, garlic, and coconut oil. Warm ingredients together on medium heat.
3. Add chicken, cover and cook for 6-8 minutes. Chicken may not be cooked through, but should be lightly browned.
4. Add pineapple and pumpkin seed mixture. Simmer another 6-10 minutes covered, till chicken is cooked through and spices/seasonings warmed.
We ate it over steamed brown basmati rice.
