CEIMB - Jerk Chicken with Cool Pineapple Salsa


I'm really glad to get back into the swing of things. Lol, after 2 weeks off i have been baking and cooking up a storm :)

When i read the title of this weeks recipe i thought it sounded nice, then i read the ingredients for the salsa. Cucumber and pineapple, together? Hmm. Oh well, give it a try.



I live in a condo in Singapore so there isn't the same level of privacy you get in a house, and after 2 years here i'm still getting used to it. Anyways, i was dicing the cucumber and pineapple, my kitchen window was open and the little girl a floor below was singing at the tops of her lungs Kelly Clarkson's Miss Independent. It kept me so entertained that i just kept on chopping and ended up with double the quantity i needed for the salsa.



I really liked this, i wasn't expecting to but it was really good. I had the chicken and salsa with couscous and raisins and it was great. My kids wouldn't try it but my husband, picky eater that he his, finished his plate.

Thank you Jen from Notes From the Table for this weeks pick. Please visit her site for the recipe.

So glad your back and that you both liked this. It is always great when you end up liking something that you were not expecting too.

That is also so funny about the singing little girl..too cute.

Funny! I think it's great you had a little entertainment while you worked away in the kitchen. The combo of the cucumber and pineapple was surprisingly tasty for me, too.

LOL at the story about your neighbor. It sounds like you have quite the singer in your neighborhood!
