Pineapple/Jalapeno Salsa Chicken with Quinoa - Healthy Meal Recipe

CHICKEN WITH PINEAPPLE/JALAPENO SALSA & QUINOA!!! 

This meal is ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!!! I love love love SPICY foods! This is such a great combo of sweet and spicy flavors!!!! I have to give props to my friend Katie for telling me about his recipe! She usually adds mango also, I personally enjoy it without but if you love Mango and want to add that, DO! 

STEP ONE: MAKE THE SALSA!!

First you will want to make the salsa. Do this the night before so that all the flavors can come together nicely! Trust me, this really does make a difference!! So make the salsa the night before making the whole dish. 

Salsa Ingredients:

3/4 pineapple

1 red bell pepper

1 jalapeno 

1 lemon (juice squeezed)

1 lime (juice squeezed)

1/3 of a Medium sized red onion

Fresh Cilantro

Salt & Pepper

*chop everything up, mix it all together, cover it and refrigerate it overnight. 

My opinion with the salsa is that you can mix the recipe up to match what you enjoy! If you love extra spicy food... add more jalapeno. If you love sweet salsa and sauces... add more pineapple or add mango. You catch what I'm saying! Play with it!

 

Next Day! Chicken, Quinoa and EAT!

I took 3 chicken breasts, thawed them, cut them into about 3 inch slices and stir fried them in some olive oil. You can cook them in any oil, coconut oil would be great too!! Once the chicken is almost done, add in the salsa!! Mix well and let it simmer! The chicken will soak up the flavors!!!! YUMM!

*I made some organic quinoa on the side, and dished out about 1/3 cup of quinoa then topped it with the FINISHED chicken with pineapple-jalapeno salsa!!!!! 

MY HUSBAND AND I BOTH WENT FOR SECONDS!!! IT WAS AMAZING!!!!
