Today’s recipe is full of flavor. When I tasted it for the first time my knees went a little wobbly – I am not kidding. Plus I love the fact that I was able to sneak in my favorite fruit pineapples. This is a perfect snack for the Big Game on Sunday. You can cook the pineapple and chicken in advance 🙂
