Honestly, how can six little ingredients (not counting the salt and pepper) bring sooooooooooooooo much flavor and ‘eye candy’ appeal! I mean this is a dinner that you’ll have little prep, minimal clean up and exploding flavors! Yes, this one pan chicken with pineapple and veggies is something that will be ready in no time, and even if it’s 7:30 or 8 pm at night, you’ll be able to prepare, cook, eat, clean up and still be in bed by 10!
Fruit with meat makes the meat even more flavorful. Very common in the Middle East, fruit and meat just go together. It can be dried fruits or fresh fruits. And, in this case, the pineapple tidbits in 100% natural juice are about as close to fresh as if you sliced up the pineapple yourself. When they absorb the spice mixture that you think is just for the savory vegetables, you get a whole new sense of what delicious is!
Sure hope you try this recipe! It’s so simple, it’s crazy. I’m thinking you could do it with pork chops, too, so go head and try it! xoxo ~ally
