If you want a filling family dinner with lots of good fruits and veggies, you’re going to love this convenient Pineapple Jerk Chicken Recipe.
The simple fact is… I hate making dinner a lot of nights.
It’s a serious pain in the tuchus!
What I really like about this recipe is you can keep the ingredients on hand and pull together a dinner without heading to the grocery store.
I can just keep the canned ingredients in my pantry and a pound of frozen chicken in my freeze until I’m ready.
Just be sure you leave enough time to thaw out the chicken!
