YIELD: 6-8 tacos




  • Marinade: Place chopped chicken breast pieces in a quart size plastic bag. Mix marinade ingredients and pour over chicken, seal bag and squish around to distribute marinade. Place in the refridgerator for at least 6 hours or overnight.
  • After chicken has marinated, make the pineapple salsa: Dice all of the salsa ingredients and gently fold them together until mixed. You can use all pineapple or a combination of pineapple, kiwi, mangos, and mandarine orange segments. Sprinkle with the lime juice and season with salt and pepper.
  • To cook chicken: Preheat a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the chicken and marinade to the pan being careful of the rising steam and cook until the chicken is cooked through, stirring occasionally (about 5 minutes). Turn up the heat to high and cook until the liquid evaporates and the chicken just begins to char - Make sure to keep your eyes on it at this point as it can burn quickly - Remove the pan from the heat.
  • Let your family build their own tacos using the tortillas, chicken, shredded cheese, chopped green chiles, sour cream, salsa, and pineapple salsa.
