Hawaiian Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner

Happy Cinco de Mayo/Kentucky Derby Day!

We’re having a few friends over this evening to eat a taco bar, drink tequila, and play games. I’m making my honey-lime poblano chicken tacos and some regular ground beef tacos…plus a pina colada tres leches cake & a special side dish!

The chips and salsa will be free flowing. I seriously live for chips an salsa. My body is fueled by the stuff.

Get ready to see a lot of bowl recipes this week. Since we’re partying it up today, my meal-prepping weekend is cut a day short–so simple bowls will be made tomorrow!

This sheet pan dinner/bowl was everything I love in food. Sweet, spicy, chicken, red onion, and PINEAPPLE! Pineapple is one of my favorite fruits. However, I haven’t got the slightest clue on how to cut up the stuff so I always buy pre-cut pineapple. Is it more expensive? Oh, I’m sure. Is it worth it? Absolutely.

Is anyone else as obsessed with sheet pan dinners as I am? Seriously. They’re amazing. Everything is on ONE pan and cleanup couldn’t be easier. Sheet pan dinners = life.

Sorry to keep this short, but I’ve got to cleanup my house. I’d like to blame the mess all on Bolo and Rob, but I know I’m to blame as well! Enjoy this simple dinner recipe.
