honey lime chicken – with pineapple!

Holy deliciousness, Batman! dinner

This is more of a recipe review than anything, but I thought I’d let y’all know that this one’s a keeper.   I was worried that, between a whole can of pineapple and the added honey, it would be just a gooey, sticky, overly sweet mess.

… but it was good!  Like, double exclamation point good!! Like, second helpings good!

Of course, this means that only The Greek had leftovers today, but that’s okay… I was craving an egg salad sandwich anyway.  (Seriously… with olives)

The lemon juice (I used the juice of two limes rather than measuring) counter-balanced all that sweetness to create a really easy sweet-and-sour chicken dish. And I’ll let you in on a little secret  – I didn’t read the instructions all the way through, so after adding about half a cup of pineapple juice, I drank the rest.  Who knows?  Maybe that made all the difference.

I will say that it needed a little sumpthin’ sumpthin’ for texture, though.  The author recommends chow mein noodles, which sounds good.  Or maybe some cashews.  Whatever you have on hand.  Plus a vegetable – we had some steamed broccoli, but snow peas would be great too.

Frugal can be so much more than dried garbanzo beans! (I’m talking to YOU, Mr. Panera CEO man)
