Pineapple Jerk Chicken

My husband Doug and I were taking about this Jamaican Restaurant that we loved so much in NYC so it made me start to crave Jamaican Jerk Seasoning and Pineapples. I found this recipe on Becoming Betty and tried it out. I have to admit that it was just OK but super easy to make. I put it over brown rice and next time will add some more pineapple chunks.

1/4 cup olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2-3 chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
1/2 of a pineapple, cut into bite-size pieces
1/2 cup jerk marinade (I used Lawry's)
1 can black beans, rinsed
1/2 cup chopped cilantro

*In a skillet, heat 2 Tbs. olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook until browned. Add the remaining olive oil and increase heat a little. Season chicken with salt/pepper and add to skillet. Cook until done. Add the pineapple and jerk marinade and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Stir in black beans and cilantro. Cook until beans are heated through.
