This recipe for Chicken & Pineapple Tacos are a perfect example of a Making It Delicious dish. This dish is paired with the Sweet & Spicy Seasoning and the BBQ Sauce. Aside from the marinade hour, these tacos can be prepared in under 30 minutes. Chicken thighs are my go to choice for tacos.. Always. Actually, I prefer chicken thighs for any application that presents itself that the chicken is chopped or shredded. They are inexpensive, juicy and take on great flavor. The grilled pineapple really adds a great burst of freshness, acidity and sweetness to each bite. While the little pop of jalapeno and bbq sauce give us that spiciness we love. I really hope you enjoy this dish as much as I do!
