I am all about some pineapple. I love it! ItÔÇÖs so sweet and tart and delicious, while not overloading at all on the carbs. I used to eat it by the can when I was a kid, and top it off with the juice. Now I like to get fresh pineapples and cut them myself. The bromelain in pineapples also reduces inflammation and swelling, allowing you to live healthier and look more toned!

When theyÔÇÖre in season I buy several and cut them into chunks, keeping them in salt water in the fridge. They keep for over a week that way, and I can snack on them whenever I want! (Just need to rinse the salt water off first).

I also like to incorporate pineapple into savory recipes. It always adds an unexpected, exotic twist to any food, giving it that sweet-and-sour flair. Did you know that pineapples also contain an enzyme that helps with digestion?

Maybe thatÔÇÖs why I always crave them for dessert! I love this easy recipe for pineapple chicken because itÔÇÖs a little bit sweet and a little bit spicy, and it is a great way to mix up your old chicken stand-by. There's no overly heavy breading for this style of chicken, so it's also very keto-friendly as one of the easier keto recipes with chicken. Try it and let us know what you think!

  • 1 t cayenne pepper (flakes or powder)--optional
Directions for Easy Keto Spicy-Sweet Pineapple Shredded Chicken:
  1. Add the chicken and salsa and cayenne to the VitaClay pot
  2. Cook on ÔÇťstewÔÇŁ for 1 to 1 1/2 hours
  3. Shred the chicken in the pot
  4. Add the pineapple and cook for another 10-20 minutes (if you want to leave the pineapple raw thatÔÇÖs cool too)
  5. Serve over rice, tortillas or in tacos
**You could also just make pineapple salsa (or peach, or mangoÔÇŽ), and use that instead of the salsa +fresh pineapple.
