One-Pan Tropical Chicken Tacos

with Pineapple Salsa and Hot Sauce Crema

Read more

It’s not always easy to eat enough fruit. Luckily, these tacos feature plenty of it—plus some bonus veggies, too—thanks to a pineapple and lime salsa (with a bit of onion and cilantro tossed in) that’s probably the easiest way to get picky eaters to eat their produce. The salsa joins warmly spiced chicken and a hot-sauce crema inside warm tortillas. Oh, and bonus alert: it can all be made with just one pan, so cleanup will be a breeze.
