Grilled Chicken with Pineapple Salsa

It’s hot outside and we are firing up our grill.  I really love being able to pass the cooking to Zack during the warmer months.  We usually grill out a lot during the Summer and we don’t always do hamburgers and hotdogs.

This recipe not only tastes delicious but is good for you as well!
