Tropical Salsa Chicken with Brown Rice

Oh, I am so sad to not have my better camera fixed. Hopefully I will have it in about a week. This picture does not do the food justice. It tasted really good. It was a tropical salsa, the jalapeno gives it some spice. The combination with the chicken and brown rice were wonderful.


2 lbs chicken tenders
4-5 T Lime Juice divided
1 med red onion chopped up coarsely
1-2 T Jalapeno (depends on how much spice you want)
1 20 oz can of pineapple tidbits drained save the 1/2 of the juice
4 T oil
1/2 tsp pepper
2 C cooked brown rice
salt and pepper to taste


1. Heat up frying pan to med high heat. Pour in 2 T oil. Then add the onion and pineapple. Stir and cook till onion is soft.

2. Add 2 T of lime juice, pepper to the pineapple mixture and the jalapeno. Cook 4 min and then set aside.

3. Heat frying pan add 2 T oil and then add chicken 2 T lime juice, and the pineapple juice. You could brown the chicken if you wanted to, before you add the juice.) Put on the lid and steam it, stirring it occasionally. Chop into smaller pieces.

4. Combine the pineapple salsa, rice and chicken and heat thoroughly.(You could serve them separately) Serve! You can garnish with cilantro.

*Taking seeds out of the jalapeno makes them less spicy!
