Low-Fat Pineapple Salsa Chicken

Looking for an easy no-fail dinner that tastes amazing? This is it! And when I say easy, I mean I think my dog could probably make this. He might eat the entire dish before we got to it, but still. This is easy peasy!

I wish I could take credit for this great recipe, but it comes from the wonderful Gracious Pantry. I made some very slight adjustments, but really, it's her recipe. I just had to share it with all of you because it's perfect for those crazy days when you're pretty sure it will be a drive-thru night. This is faster ... and a lot healthier too.
