Super Easy Weeknight Meal

New recipes can be scary or exciting.  It's up to you which experience you want to have.  Don't let yourself get worked up. Always try to go into cooking with the frame of mind that if it messes up we'll just order take out! 

Last night I tried a new recipe from the Pioneer Woman.  We're instantly becoming friends.  Just like Sarah Palin and I, but that's a whole different story.  No political comments please...

This recipe caught my attention quickly because it calls for pineapple.  I absolutely adore pineapple.  It's probably my favorite fruit.  Ree (that's the Pioneer Woman) gave a great tutorial in this link on how to slice up your own pineapple, and it is very informative.  If I ever decide to cut up my own pineapple I'll definitely use her technique.  However, for a week night- wait, who am I kidding? I'll probably never slice up my own pineapple! Can rings work perfectly.  I use the kind in their own juice- no heavy syrup tonight.

You can find Ree's recipe here: Pioneer Woman

Very short ingredient list- tortillas, chicken breasts, sauce (she used bbq, I used Jamaican Jerk, but next time I'm trying teriyaki), pineapple, margarine/butter, S&P, cheese (I used shredded monterey jack)

First, bang out all your aggressions, I mean your chicken. large can of pineapple works wonders

grill your pineapple
salt and pepper your chicken then grill in some margarine/butter- put some of your sauce on
butter a pan and put your tortilla in fill with cheese and chopped chicken/pineapple
 -can add jalapenos or anything else
add a little more cheese, what can it hurt? top it with tortilla and flip to brown the other side (add more butter)
Very easy, very yummy.
{don't feel sorry for us because of my pitiful table; i have a dining room table, but who wants to eat in there?!}
