    I simmer the chicken on the stove in the juices after it has marinated. YUMMY!

    I've never had pineapple salsa until I tried this. This stuff is THE BEST! I have to quadruple the recipe because everyone eats it like CRAZY! I lost my recipe the other day and it took me forever to find this recipe again. I was just about in tears!! Now it is saved to my account so I won't lose it. THANK YOU so much for this awesome recipe.

    Great recipe, the salsa is excellent. I'd add more jalapenos because it lacked heat for my tastes but I'll definitely make this again. Thanks.

    I just finished eating this and it was one of the moistest, tastiest chicken recipes. The salsa is awesome and it makes it nice summer fare. I added more cilantro and lime and used fresh pineapple as I had one that was getting overripe (which is why I searched for a chicken and pineapple recipe). I only marinated 5 hours, but think it would be even better overnight. Thanks for posting.

    Very good. I followed the recipe exactly and let my chicken marinate for 24 hrs. I didn't feel like the chicken absorbed much flavor but the salsa was delicious and the chicken was moist. I tried to cook the marinade down as the instruction said but my marinade became chunky (don't know why) so I did not use that. Will definitely make again.
