Coronation Chicken

This is a light, wonderful dish to make and eat on those late summer nights when you just want a lighter meal. After a little preparation, you can enjoy this dish and not feel so full it slows you down or leaving you feel over-stuffed. If prepped earlier in the day, it can be waiting for you when the hectic day is done.


800 g (2 lbs) boiled chicken

Cut into thin slices or dice into 1/2 bites

100 g (4 oz) Fresh Pineapple, can use canned slices
