A Taste of Summertime

With all of this winter weather we’ve been having I decided to spice things up a notch…. in the kitchen!  If you would have told me 3 years ago that I would have a blog with a recipe on it that I cooked I would have laughed in your face!  Don’t even get me started on what my parents and sister would’ve said.  I used to not know how to cook At. All.  but I’ve slowly learned how and I have super yummy  and healthy recipe  for today.

Summertime Chicken and Salsa

You will need:


Chicken Breast Strips

One can of Mexican Lime and Cilantro Ro*Tel



Salt and pepper

Place chicken strips in a baking dish and sprinkle on lime juice from Ro*Tel

Give a good coat of lemon and orange juice and salt and pepper.

Turn chicken over and repeat!

We grilled them on the grill, but you could cook them however suits your needs.

Next the sauce. You will needDSCN1624:

The same can of Ro*Tel




Frozen Pineapple Chunks

Salt and Pepper

*Hot Salsa


Put the whole can of Ro*Tel in a mixing bowl.

Dice up about 10 jalapeños (more if you like it hotter)

1/2 tsp of garlic


Squeeze lemon juice in

Slice about 20 pineapple cubes and add

Most of the time I add some onion, but I didn’t have any so again optional.

*If you are feeding lots of people or if you want to make the salsa last a little longer, I add some of the already made HOT salsa from the store.


Note: This is a HOT salsa!  Just a warning.

Serve with chips as an appetizer and pour over chicken for dinner.  Very easy, because even I can do it!DSCN1629


Happy Eating!
