Chicken with Rosemary and Pineapple - CIC

How did June 20th get here so fast? I am busier than a one legged man in a butt kicking contest, as my Daddy used to say and I barely know what day it is. I'm meeting myself coming and going but life is so different that it was a year ago...but you folks know that already.

With it being the 20th, that means CIC! Yep, Crazy Ingredient Challenge time, whoop whoop!

This month the agreed upon ingredients are...

I love pineapple and pairing it with chicken or fish is a wonderful choice. I debated on making a sweet bread or muffins of some sort but went for the chicken.

Very simple and easy to make:
1 large chicken breast (debone and skinless, sliced into thick slices)
garlic powder
1/2 tsp rosemary
pepper to taste
1 tsp oil
1/3 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup pineapple chunks

Season the sliced chicken breast with the spices, add the oil to a skillet and saute. Once it is brown on one side flip over and pour the juice over the chicken. Add pineapple to the pan. Allow to cook until juice thickens and chicken is done. This takes all of about 10 minutes.
I served mine with mashed red potatoes and sweet garden peas.

Let's see what my other creative blogger pals came up with:
