Paleo Pineapple Salsa Chicken Bake
Whenever I find a good deal on organic, free-range whole chicken, I stock up. As soon as I get home, I begin cooking a couple in the crockpot or large stockpot. When they’re finished cooking, I bag up the meat and then make chicken stock with the left over bones and broth.
On busy days – which let’s face it, is more often than not – I’ll grab a bag of cooked, shredded chicken out of the freezer and pull together an easy, but tasty, meal. Pineapple Salsa Chicken Bake is one of those meals. With only 5 ingredients it’s super quick to pull together. With the taste, though, your family will never know!
