The recipe this week was chosen by Jen B of Notes from the Table. Let me first say this recipe was fabulous! It was a huge hit at my house. Plus, it was super easy! I was somewhat skeptical about the pineapple and cucumber mixture -- but it was really good!
I substituted a serrano pepper and some cayenne powder for the habanero pepper. I once experimented with a habanero, but it didn't play nice. So, habaneros don't get invited to play group at my house anymore! I think the substitution still provided a nice level of heat, but it wasn't too hot (like the chipotles in adobo sauce were!) Also, I left the mint out of the salsa.
The chicken had a great spicy flavor and the pineapple salsa made the dish absolutely perfect. I loved this recipe and will definitely be making it again.
Great pick this week Jen B. Hope your vacation was great!
