Pineapple Coconut Mango Tequila Chicken

I have so cleverly entitled this dish after the sauce I used.

I was getting ready to make dinner last night. I had a couple of squash that my friend gave me from her garden, and I was going to roast it with some chicken and flavor everything with cinnamon and brown sugar.

That was until I decided that there wasn’t NEARLY enough squash to make a full meal for two.

I looked through my fridge and found that I had plenty of onion and green bell peppers from the Farmer’s market, so I pulled them out and added them to the baking dish. I didn’t feel that cinnamon and brown sugar were the appropriate seasonings any longer.

I bought this sauce at Giant (Stop & Shop, whatever it is near you) and we have been LOVING it as a marinade for grilled chicken. So I decided to use it as the sauce for baking. I seasoned the veggies with some pepper and Cayenne. Then I seasoned the chicken with salt  & pepper and poured this sauce on top.

I baked the entire dish together at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes, until the chicken was done.

It was spicy but it was very delicious! If I make it again I may have to actually marinate the chicken in some coconut tequila or something!
