Our Best Bites' Sweet Chili Chicken with Pineapple Salsa

Here is a fun recipe that is easy to put together, and great for the summertime, especially if you like sweet with meat, like my Aaron does.  This really hit the spot with him, he loved it, and gave it a 9, while Owen and Noah gave it an 8, and I gave it a 6, because I don't like the sweet meat thing :).  Anyway, this comes together quickly, especially when I have Aaron around to cut up the pineapple for me :).  Each serving was 236 calorie for the five of us, and here's what I did:

1 lime, juiced
1 1/2 t curry powder
2 t vegetable oil
1 lb chicken tenders
salt and pepper

1 1/2 c diced pineapple
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
1 avocado, diced
1 T fresh lime juice
3 T cilantro

3 T sweet chili sauce
1 T honey
1 1/2 t soy sauce
1 T warm water

Marinate the chicken with the lime, curry, vegetable oil and salt and pepper for about 4 hours.  Broil the chicken, about 4 minutes per side, checking internal temperature to ensure doneness.

Mix together the salsa ingredients and serve with the chicken.

Mix together the sauce ingredients and serve with the chicken.

  1. To me this looks really good, especially the avocado, but your dad would not eat it, so I will not attempt this one. Love mom
