Servings 4


  • 6-7 chicken breast tenderloins, cut in cubes I like the tenders rather than standard chicken breast because it doesn't dry out in the oven
  • 4 spicy chicken sausage links, sliced Jalepeno or andouille work well
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 20 oz can pineapple chunks (in juice) If you use fresh pineapple, it would be 1 whole pineapple
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut in cubes
  • 1 onion, cut in cubes
  • 2 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper look for the pepper grinder version so it can be freshly cracked
  • 1/4 cup apricot or mango jam


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and turn your broiler on to high.
  • Get 3 baking sheets ready, 1 for the sausage, 1 for the veggies and 1 for the chicken.
  • Add pineapple, onions and peppers to a lined baking sheet. Toss with 1 tbs olive oil and bake for 15-20 minutes until tender. Pour any excess liquid from the cooked fruits and veggies into a bowl and set aside. Move the baking sheet into the broiler for 5-8 minutes to get a nice char.
  • Place the chicken sausage on another lined baking sheet, toss with 1 tsp olive oil and place in the broiler. Cook 8-10 minutes until slightly charred.
  • Place chicken chunks into a bowl and toss with smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, salt, black pepper and 1 tbs of olive oil. Pour the chicken onto a lined baking sheet and spread the pieces out. Bake for 5 minutes (it will be under-cooked). Pour off any excess liquid from the cooked chicken into the bowl with the fruit and vegetable liquid. Move the baking sheet into the broiler for 3-4 minutes to get a nice char.
  • Add the apricot or mango jam to the veggie/chicken baking liquid. Throw in a pinch of salt and pepper and microwave for 1 minute. To serve, get a little bit of everything on your plate and drizzle with the sauce. Enjoy!
