Pineapple Lime Chicken

Friday, March 03, 2023

This recipe can be thrown in the freezer in less than 3 minutes. Pineapple and lime are an epic combo and the cauliflower absorbs so. much. flavor!

I usually use chicken thighs in a recipe like this because:
1. They are more forgiving
2. They have better flavor
3. They are less expensive
