  1. This looks delicious and easy – two of my favorite things. Freezing question: How many times can you freeze and re-freeze the chicken? If I buy a raw chicken and freeze it, and then thaw it and cook it, then freeze the leftover cooked chicken, can I take that leftover frozen chicken, thaw it, make this recipe and then re-freeze it? How many times can I thaw, cook, freeze, thaw, cook, freeze the chicken before it’s not good to eat?

  2. Made this tonight using freshly made pineapple salsa (made it from scratch because I have other food allergies that stop me from being able to eat store bought)…. Ruined!DO NOT USE FRESH PINEAPPLE for this recipe – I learned the hard way there is an enzyme in fresh pineapple that quickly reacts with meat. The result was a chalk tasting, inedible mess 🙁

    1. Oh no Michelle! I am so sorry to hear that! Is there anyway you could save it by adding a juice(or acidic ingredient) to cut down on the chalky effect from the fresh pineapple? Maybe lemon or lime juice? I hope you can still turn it into something else so it doesn’t go to waste.
