Vegetarian Sam likes to have lots of fruits when she’s home on weekends. Speedy bought a whole pineapple last Saturday but Sam was not able to come home. The pineapple won’t stay fresh until the next weekend so Speedy finally skinned it.
As he did so, on the other end of the kitchen island, I was prepping a whole chicken for lunch. I had cut the bird up into serving size pieces but I still hadn’t decided how I was going to cook it. I was thinking chicken kaldereta but, on second thought, I felt a stew was too heavy for lunch on a humid day. My eyes wandered to the pineapple, I noticed how Speedy was popping pieces into his mouth as he sliced and cut, and I explaimed, “Hep, hold it! Leave some for the chicken.”
And I went on to make this chili chicken and fresh pineapple dish. With bold and vibrant flavors and colors, the browned chicken is braised in the natural juices that the pineapple expels during cooking. »
