Chicken Fajitas Recipe Ingredients:
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 medium bell pepper (sliced)
1 small onion (sliced)
1 ½ tsp chili powder
½ tsp cumin
Juice of half a lemon
¼ teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon salt to taste

Pineapple Salsa Recipes Ingredients:
1 cup pineapple tidbits
½ cup chopped cilantro
½ cup chopped onion
2 cloves of minced garlic
2 jalapeno peppers finely diced

Pineapple Salsa Recipe: First start by prepping your salsa to allow more time for the juices to marry together. Mince onion, garlic, jalapeno and chop cilantro. Drain your pineapple tidbits and place them in a bowl. Add all of the ingredients together and mix well. Ideally allow to sit in the refrigerator for a few hours up to overnight for best taste.

Chicken Fajita Preparation: Cut chicken breasts long ways into 1” strips. Spray a grill pan or skillet with a non-stick cooking spray and allow to heat over a medium high heat. To the hot pan, add chicken, seasonings, and lemon juice and allow to cook for 3-5 minutes on one side. Flip chicken and add the peppers and onion and continue cooking for an additional 3-5 minutes or until chicken juice runs clear and not pink.

Serve between tortillas, on a salad, or even on it’s own with black beans. ENJOY!
