A Trader Joe Treat- Balsamic Lime Chicken with Pineapple Salsa

To Learn More about Trader Joe's, go to: http://www.traderjoes.com/ I wanted to share one of my favorite fast recipes for chicken. Not only is it fast, it is healthy and full of flavor (without salt or butter). I used think my regular balsamic lime chicken was awesome when I was single, going to college. The introduction to Trader Joe's was when I lived in California (It was a few blocks away). After trying the salsa alone -that was recommended by my sister Angie (thanks)- I don't want to have this chicken dish any other way.

For our featured product this week, I want to recommend one of my many favorite Trader Joe products, Pineapple Salsa. It is hard to keep a full jar in our house. The sweet and spicy taste of this salsa is perfect for almost anything. We like to use it on poultry, fish, and many Mexican dishes.
