Pineapple Chicken Teriyaki Boats | Delicious Mouth-Watering Chicken Dinner

Farmer Al began using sunflowers as a renewable energy source on his farm and ranch near Ord, Nebraska. Through research, he discovered the multiple health benefits of sunflowers - rich in Vitamin E and antioxidants, high in beneficial fats, and cholesterol & trans-fat free. Al then decided to also use his crop as a direct source for sunflower cooking oil. Thus, Simply Sunflower All-Natural Oil was born.
