Pineapple Salsa Chicken

I have a collection of recipes that I have been wanting to try, but because they are out of sight in a folder, I rarely think to look through them to find something to make for dinner.

This recipe is from Dole and appears to be something I tore out of a booklet of some sort. I made some adjustments, adding more bell pepper and using a smaller pineapple than was in the original recipe.

The fresh salsa flavor was a welcome addition to our winter menu, but would be excellent in the summer on grilled chicken. We enjoyed it with a side of rice. We have a good amount of salsa left, so we will enjoy that with some tortilla chips.

Pineapple Salsa Chicken

Servings 4 (but there was salsa leftover)

4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Fillets
2 cups pineapple tidbits
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped yellow bell pepper
1 tablespoon chopped green onions
2 teaspoons chopped, fresh cilantro
2 teaspoons chopped jalapeno peppers

Prepare chicken on the grill or in the oven.

In a bowl, combine the pineapple, peppers, green onions, cilantro and jalapeno peppers.

Serve chicken with the salsa.
