Thursday Recipe - Tropical Southwest Chicken

Crazy at my house. This dinner was almost an accident. It was late and dinner wasn't made. So we dumped some things together and ended up with a very tasty meal. Sometimes the magic works.

So have fun with this recipe. We did.

Someone told me I should post photos of the recipes. Ha! That involves knowing where my camera is and making the food look pretty and getting the picture before my kids devour it. I'll try next week, after I'm through hosting a wedding.

Tropical Southwest Chicken

1 bag (20 oz?) frozen pre-cooked southwest flavored chicken strips (or cook your own, season with cumin, chili powder, garlic, salt, and pepper)
1 16 oz can coconut milk
1 20 oz can pineapple tidbits
1 red bell pepper, diced
2 green onions, sliced
Steamed rice

Dump everything except rice in a saucepan. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes until hot through. Remove the lid. Cook and stir for another 4 - 5 minutes to help thicken sauce. Serve over rice.
