Friday Live Well Recipe: Aloha Chicken

Get ready for a trip to a tropical island with Live Well Alabama’s Aloha Chicken. Step into the Live Well Alabama Kitchen for this tropical chicken recipe that is sure to be a new favorite for the whole family. Pineapple and chicken may be the new combination you never knew you needed.

“This is a great recipe for your little helper in the kitchen. Let your child spoon in sauce and spread veggies around in the pan. Enjoy a pineapple chunk or two before mixing them in. Kids are more likely to eat new foods when they help cook!” -Katie Funderburk, Alabama Extension nutrition specialist, and registered dietitian

Tip: Try serving it over cooked whole-grain rice. Also, try this recipe with fresh pineapple. Choose one that is firm but slightly soft when squeezed.
