Make this now!

Oh my word!!
Seriously people stop what your doing (after you read this of course) and go to the store and get the stuff to make this dinner. Like now. It is that good. Everyone in here loved it. There were no left overs; not even a tiny bit. I will definitely be adding this to my regular rotation.

Pineapple Glazed Chicken with Jalapeno Pineapple Salsa
(adapted from a recipe at Epicurious.com)

3/4 cup fresh pineapple diced into 1/4 inch cubes (i'm sure canned pineapple would work fine if you can't find fresh)
3 Tblsp finely diced red bell peper
2 Tblsp diced red onion
2 Tblsp chopped fresh cilantro
1 Tblsp diced jalapeno (without the seeds it will not be so hot)

Mix all that together and splash a little bit of pineapple juice over it just to get the flavors mixing.

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts patted dry and seasoned with salt and peper
1-2 Tblsp olive oil

Heat a skillet on medium high heat add olive oil and let it get hot.
Add chicken and brown on each side
Once the chicken is done, remove it to a plate and wipe your skillet sort of clean

Glaze: (this is the goooood part!) I doubled this recipe
1/4 cup pineapple juice (i used caned juice that I found by the 'ethnic' juices...like coconut, and mango etc...)
2 Tblsp brown sugar
2 Tblsp yellow mustard ( i used spicy brown mustard because it was what I had)

In your skillet on medium low add in the juice, brown sugar and mustard and whisk together. Bring to a boil and let it simmer for a minute till it thickens a bit. Then add the chicken back to the skillet and let it all warm together, spooning the sauce over the chicken.

And surprisingly, even as good as this is...it is low in WW points. Aprox. 4pts per serving and I calculated it at 4 servings.

Serve with Cilantro Lime Rice (tastes just like Chipotle's) and black beans.
