Chicken Pineapple Tacos

Main Dishes

(Serves 10).



  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken (about ½ of the chicken)
  • 1-2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Pineapple Salsa:

  • 1.5 cups diced fresh pineapple
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/3 bunch of cilantro, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons juice of 1 lime
  • Dash of salt

Also needed:

  • 10-12 corn tortillas
  • Shredded lettuce.


  1. To make the chicken mixture, combine all the ingredients into a small microwaveable bowl.  Start with the seasonings, then add the lime juice and water and mix with a fork until well combined.
  2. Add the chicken and stir to combine into the seasoning mixture.  Mix together with a fork until fully combined and well coated.
  3. Microwave for about 1-2 minutes until the chicken is warmed through.
  4. To make the pineapple salsa, combine all the salsa ingredients into a medium-sized bowl and mix well.
  5. To heat the tortillas, heat a skillet over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes.  Brush oil into the pan and on both sides of the tortillas.  Heat for 30-40 seconds on each side.  Repeat until all tortillas have been charred.
  6. Hold a tortilla shell open and scoop some warm chicken mixture into the center.  Top with some pineapple salsa and shredded lettuce. Repeat with the remaining shells. Enjoy!
