Rotisserie Chicken Tacos with Pineapple Salsa

Rotisserie Chicken Tacos with Pineapple Salsa

Ingredients

For the pineapple salsa:

  • 2 cups fresh pineapple, diced (or canned pineapple, drained and rinsed)
  • 2 tablespoons red onion, finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 medium lime, juiced
  • 1/2 jalapeño or serrano pepper, finely minced

For the chicken tacos:

  • 4 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 12 medium (about 6-inches in diameter) corn tortillas (certified gluten-free if necessary)

For the guacamole (optional)

  • 2 large avocados
  • 1/2 medium lime, juiced
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced
  • Sea salt, to taste

Directions

Place the oven rack on the top shelf and preheat your oven to broil at 420°F. If you can’t control the temperature of your oven, move the rack down one notch.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. (Note: the parchment paper will prevent the chicken from sticking to the pan, but it will brown, and might smoke, under the broiler.)

Mix all the pineapple salsa ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl. If you’re making the guacamole, mix all the guacamole ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.

Broil shredded rotisserie chicken in your oven for 10 minutes, or until the chicken is crispy and brown in many spots, mixing halfway through. While the chicken is broiling, warm the tortillas on a frying pan.

Top each taco with rotisserie chicken and pineapple salsa. Add a dollop of guacamole if desired. Serve immediately.
