  1. Dice Pineapple – Put the diced pineapple into a bowl. Save the juice for the chicken marinade.

When the oil is hot, add in the peppers and onions, stirring occasionally until browned and slightly softened. Season them with salt and pepper. About 5-6 minutes.
  5. Cook the chicken – Add the chicken to the pan, along with any marinade in the bowl. Cook until chicken is done, another 6-7 minutes. Season to taste.
  6. Make the Pineapple Salsa – Combine the pineapple, minced onion, zest of 1 lime, juice from half of a lime, and 1/4 cup of cilantro. Season with salt. Stir to combine and serve.
