I’ve come to realize that many of my meals really do not include fancy “recipes”. In order to keep things simple, quick, and easy for my busy family and avoid the fast-food windows, I often make quick and easy meals that only include a few ingredients. It seems so silly for me to write up these type of “recipes”, but I’ve decided that I really need to for you to truly understand how we Juggle Real Food and Real Life.
One of my favorite summertime meals are these Pineapple Chicken Burgers. They come together in just a few minutes and are really satisfying. We often make extra for dinner and then pack them in lunches for the next day. They warm up nicely, but also taste delicious cold if a microwave or stove is not available. The other thing that I love about this recipe is that the chicken is grilled. In my house, that means my husband is in charge of the grill and I only have to put the sides together. My husband really loves his grill! He is always looking for an excuse to grill something. See that big smile? Yep, that’s after a long day at work. That grill really makes him happy. Who am I to get in the way of that happiness??
Grilling pineapple just takes a few minutes on each side.
