Deliciousness is the mother of invention…

pineapple chicken

The other night I was at a friend’s house for dinner and they made this absolutely delicious chicken with pineapple salsa.  It was so good…

I dreamed about it!  I desired it!  I craved it!  I craved it for tonight’s dinner in fact.

A smart person… a normal person… she would have simply asked her friend for the recipe.  Not me… here’s my own unique invention inspired by Ms. Rachel Start’s pineapple chicken:

Pineapple Chicken

1 can cubed pineapple drained

2 roma tomatoes diced

1/2 jalapeño pepper minced

2 Tbsp. snipped chives

the juice of 1 lime

2 large chicken breasts cubed

a healthy drizzle olive oil

2 Tbsp. Thyme

1 tsp. black pepper

Mix pineapple, tomato, chives, jalapeño, and lime juice – set aside.

In a medium sized bowel, toss chicken cubes, thyme, pepper, and olive oil until well coated.  Sauté over medium heat until cooked through, top with salsa and enjoy :)
