Over the weekend we had Jellybean’s baby blessing. There is just something about going back home that I will never miss. I grew up in a suburb of Chicago, my husband is from the Central Illinois area and something about going home and being with your family is absolutely the best. My in laws, brother and sister in laws and my family all joined us for this joyous occasion. After the ceremony where they blessed my sweet baby and gave her a name in our church and added her to our records we feasted on yummy salads, cheeseburgers and banana cake. I am thankful for my family and the love they show me.
It brings me back to a movie I watched with my husband recently, Lilo & Stitch and how in Hawaii family is everything. My husband served a 2 year mission in Hawaii through our church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) and I am always looking for great things to make that make him think of the wonderful time he had while serving.
This week brings me to Hawaiian Chicken. Its something I have made in the past that I know he enjoys and its easy to whip up as meal preparation and serve for lunches during the week.
- 3 chicken breasts, cubed
- 1 can of diced pineapple (you can use fresh, it just wasn’t on sale)
- 1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced
- BBQ sauce of your liking (I like sweet baby rays)
- sea salt and pepper
Cook the chicken until browned then add in Sea salt and pepper. Then add in the pineapple and green onions. Cook for about 5 minutes and then add in the BBQ sauce.
I added roasted zucchini and 1/4 cup of brown rice to the meal and called it lunch. Enjoy!
