Fabulous! I used canned crushed pineapple and skipped the butter and cooking of it omitted the orange juice as well did add the zest of the lime. I place the chicken and olive oil, chili powder, garlic salt, and paprika in a zip lock bag closing to just an inch open and then flattened with a rolling pin. A Quick, clean, and easy way to tenderize and season the chicken. Thanks!!!!

We all really liked this. I also used canned pineapple and it was just fine. Easy, and the salsa is great!
