Living life and learning all I can along the way!

Pineapple-Jalapeño Chicken

This is another one of those recipes from know, where I have a few ingredients lying around that I need to use up, so I decide to make up a new dish.  This time, I had jalapeños from the garden that I needed to use up, plus some orange bell peppers.  I had some canned pineapple on hand and thought I could probably make something decent with those three flavors.  Here’s the quick and easy meal that I ended up with:

- 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed
- 1 orange bell pepper, chopped
- 3 jalapeño peppers, chopped
- 1 can sliced pineapple in 100% pineapple juice
- ground black pepper

Cook chicken on stove over medium-high heat in ½ of the pineapple juice from the canned pineapples.  Add jalapeños while chicken is cooking.  Once liquid is mostly evaporated, add remaining juice and bell pepper.  Cook until juice is reduced again.  Add pepper to taste.  Serve with a side of rice and the sliced pineapple.

That’s it!  A quick, simple dinner to use up some random ingredients.
