Everything’s more fun to eat when you eat it out of a pineapple!  Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner, so I made a chicken fajita bowl… in a pineapple.  SO FUN!

Recipe:

  • 1 pack chicken breasts (3 breasts)IMG_9881
  • 1 packet Simply Organic Fajita Seasoning
  • 1 whole pineapple, cut in half
  • 4 peppers, sliced (I used 2 orange, 1 green, 1 yellow)
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 2 limes
  • 2 avocados, sliced
  • olive oil
  • cilantro

Instructions:

  1. Remove the pineapple from the skin, throw away the core and dice the rest – save the hallowed out skin for your bowl!
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Combine sliced peppers & onions onto a large baking sheet. IMG_9883
  4. Sprinkle about half of the fajita seasoning over the peppers and onions and drizzle about 2 Tablespoons olive oil on top.
  5. Mix until all peppers and onions
    are coated.
  6. Place the peppers & onions in the oven and roast for about 15-20 minutes, mixing halfway through.
  7. Heat a large skillet to medium-IMG_9879high heat with about 2 Tablespoons olive oil.
  8. Season one side of each chicken breast and lay seasoned side down into the skillet
  9. Brown the first side (about 3 minutes), then before turning over, season the other side of the chicken.
  10. Turn chicken breasts over and brown the second side (about 3 more minutes).IMG_9878
  11. Lower the heat and squeeze the juice of 1 lime into the pan over the chicken and cover for about 5-6 minutes.
  12. Remove chicken from the skillet and let sit 10 minutes before cutting.
  13. Cut the chicken into thin slices.
  14. Now assemble your bowls – peppers and onions, fajita grilled chicken, avocado, diced pineapple, lime, and cilantro!

I used to LOVE pineapples and I would eat so much of it, but one fateful summer I ate too many and my mouth started burning, but I was little and I didn’t know it was because of the acidity, and I’ve never eaten fresh pineapple since. BUT I do still eat pineapples on pizza and in Chinese fried rice, and I have an especially good time when the fried rice is served in a pineapple bowl ^-^ Your recipe looks so good and so fun! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
