Pineapple Chicken Recipe

12.06.12 by Jackie

This recipe is an attempt to get rid of the horrible pineapple I purchased. I should have known better since it isn't pineapple season now. What can I say, I couldn't resist a good deal. As was to be expected, the fruit wasn't sweet at all. Instead of tossing it away, I blended it into a purée and used it as a meat tenderizer. Not only was the chicken I cooked moist, but the pineapple gave the chicken a delicious flavor. I also marinated the chicken in buttermilk overnight. A few button mushrooms added at the end completed the dish.

Acid-based marinades are my first choice to tenderize and flavor meat. Sometimes experimenting can lead to wonderful dishes. Again, that is only under the condition that you know your basics. Just adapt a standard chicken recipe and substitute in less common ingredients to form new creations. This is why I find cooking so much fun!
