How to Make Chicken with Zesty Pineapple Salsa

Step-by-Step

  1. Make slits in the chicken breasts with the tip of a sharp knife to allow the marinade to soak into the breasts. Place breasts in a plastic container.
  2. Mix juices, garlic salt and pepper. Pour over breasts and refrigerate. Turn often at the start to allow as much marinade as possible to soak in. Refrigerate overnight.
  3. Combine salsa ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Set aside while cooking the chicken.
  4. Grill or bake chicken until juices run clear. Top with the salsa before serving.
