Pineapple Chicken Fajitas

If there is something I love it is fresh veggies and fruit. I love them fresh and I love cooking with them. Recently I bought a pineapple, and the night afterward I wanted to make fajitas. It just naturally follows that I made Pineapple fajitas. I'm also trying to clean out our freezer and we had 2 chicken breasts left over from some other meal that we did not need them, so I took them out as well.

Pineapple Chicken Fajitas
Get your mise en plac.
Cut 1 red bell pepper and 1 green bell pepper into strips (you can also use a yellow pepper if you would like.) 
Slice one red onion as well. Cut a fresh pineapple into strips (about 1/2 to 1 cup of strips - if you do not have a fresh pineapple, you can use 1/2 to 1 cup of pineapple chunks.)
Cut two chicken breasts into strips. 
Heat about 1 Tbsp olive oil in pan over medium to medium high heat.
Add chicken and cook until done, turning once or twice.
While chicken is cooking, combine: 1 Tbsp corn starch, 2 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp paprika
 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp onion powder, 1/4 garlic powder, 1/4 tsp ground red pepper, and 1/4 tsp cumin. (This seasoning is a basic fajita seasoning and can be used with any fajitas.)
Add 2 Tbsp seasoning to chicken, remove from pan.
Add sliced peppers and onion to pan and cook until crisp tender.
While peppers and onions are cooking, combine the following: 
1/3 cup water, 1 tbsp honey, 1 Tbsp dried parsley, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp salt and the remaining fajita seasoning.
Add seasoning to veggies.
As well as the chicken and pineapple.
Combine and heat through.
Construct your fajitas. I spread sour cream across the tortilla, then place the fajita filling,
and top with cheese. Mozzarella cheese works wonderful as well as cheddar.


  1. What's a good price to buy a fresh pineapple at? A place here currently has them for 99 cents a pound but that equals like $5 for one that really worth it? If I find a good coupon I could get a couple cans for like $1. What do you think?

  2. I'm going to believe that this recipe is for me :) Thanks for posting... very interesting!

  3. The pineapple that I bought was at $0.79 cents per pound. I usually try to only pay at most $3-4 for a pineapple. Definitely use canned if you can get it that cheap.

  4. Nour, As much as I'd love to say that it was just for you, this recipe won the poll in the sidebar, which is how I judge which recipe to post. This was my favorite recipe from last weeks menu!

  5. Lol... heart broken ... thanks :) I definitely want to try it ...

  6. Looks yummy. I know what I'm making for dinner tonight.
