I combined chicken and pineapple for a different flavor on our fajitas. It's more on the sweet side but my family loved them! —Nancy Heishman, Las Vegas, Nevada

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 3 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1-1/2 pounds chicken tenderloins, halved lengthwise
  • 1 large red or sweet onion, halved and sliced (about 2 cups)
  • 1 large sweet red pepper, cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 1 large green pepper, cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 1 tablespoon minced seeded jalapeno pepper
  • 2 cans (8 ounces each) unsweetened pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 12 corn tortillas (6 inches), warmed
  • Optional toppings: pico de gallo, sour cream, shredded Mexican cheese blend and sliced avocado
  • Lime wedges, optional

Directions

Preheat oven to 425°. In a large bowl, mix first five ingredients; stir in chicken. Add onion, peppers, pineapple, honey and lime juice; toss to combine. Spread evenly in two greased 15x10x1-in. pans.
Roast 10 minutes, rotating pans halfway through cooking. Remove pans from oven; preheat broiler.
Broil chicken mixture, one pan at a time, 3-4 in. from heat until vegetables are lightly browned and chicken is no longer pink, 3-5 minutes. Serve in tortillas, with toppings and lime wedges as desired. Yield: 6 servings.

Test Kitchen tips
  • If you love pineapple, add even more as a topping or serve with a fruit salsa like peach or pineapple salsa.
  • If you don’t have coconut oil on hand, substitute with canola or vegetable oil.

    "We are not big fans of cooked pineapple but this recipe is delicious and easy. My first try at making a sheet pan meal that was successful. (I tried to create one and failed). As a TOH Volunteer Field Editor I have fun rating these recipes and this one deserves a try."
