Recipe: Grilled Chicken with Pineapple Avocado Salsa

August 28, 2014 – Hi everyone! It’s Ali from Gimme Some Oven. And I’m stoked to be back with you today, sharing a recipe with my all-time favorite thing to buy at ALDI — pineapple!!

Oh my goodness, I hope you all have discovered the fabulousness that is fresh and super-reasonably-priced pineapple. It was one of the very first things that sold me on shopping at ALDI way back in the day. They are always in stock, usually at least half the price (or less) of fresh pineapple at other grocery stores, and they are so sweet and satisfying!

I actually decided to make it a tradition to pick up a fresh pineapple as a treat every time I shopped at ALDI years ago. And now, years later, I think it’s safe to say I have literally purchased hundreds of fresh pineapples from the store. My friends even joke that an ALDI pineapple is part of the permanent decor in my kitchen.

Ok, now you all may think that I’m the Crazy Pineapple Lady. But for those who also love pineapple, or even those of you who just reasonably “like” it, I have a recipe to share today that is perfect for summer grilling — Grilled Chicken with Pineapple Salsa. (Or since ALDI carries pineapple year-round, you can even pop this on the grill pan in the winter and just pretend it’s summer.)

Basically, you just grill up some chicken breasts and then top them with a fresh, flavorful and easy pineapple salsa. (I highly recommend making a double-batch of the salsa for leftovers!) It’s a perfect dish for a summer weeknight, or even a simple crowd-pleaser if you’re entertaining. And of course, it’s a great excuse to pick up some of that famous pineapple.

I hope you enjoy it!

    We love Aldi’s and shop there. I wish the spaetzle noodles would come back again. The best soup I ever made was with those noodles.

    Aldi saves me hundreds of $ every month, while still eating healthy. I lost 45 lbs by increasing produce in my diet, and Aldi has made it much easier and affordable to maintain my new healthy diet and weight. This looks like a recipe the whe family will enjoy! (And now I can afford organic and gluten free!) Thank you, Aldi!

    Aldi’s is the best store with most everything we shop for on a weekly
    basic. the savings helps so many families that strive on a low income. thank you for considering our small town to establish another of your stores..

    Loving all of the gluten free options. No longer do I have to make multiple stops when grocery shopping. I especially love the bread and baking mix.

  11. Connie Marfia

    Looks and sounds good. Also sounds healthy. I will make this. I always shop Aldi’s. Only go to other stores if Aldi’s don’t have what I need. Once you shop at Aldi’s it hurts me to pay more elsewhere. I always tell my friends.

    I love using Pineapple in cooking! The natural enzymes in Pineapple help with digestion and it adds a natural sweetness to all food!
