I recently saw an idea for cooking chicken or pork in pineapple salsa. That sounded good to me, so I added pineapple salsa to a list of food to find. Finally, I found it at Trader Joe's. Using a method I have long used for cooking chicken in a skillet with water, (Weight Watcher's Fried Chicken), I formulated this recipe. When I tasted the salsa alone, I knew I needed to tone down its flavors, so I added the pineapple tidbits and honey. The result was tasty!!

How to Make Pineapple Chicken


  1. In a skillet with a lid, add the pineapple salsa and water.
  2. Rub the seasoned salt over the skinned chicken breasts and place them into the salsa and water. Add the pineapple and honey.
  3. Cover the skillet tightly with the lid and cook over over medium low heat for 30 minutes.
