Hawaiian Bowls

Every time the weather starts to warm up, Utah surprises me the next day with a snow storm. You gotta love spring in Utah. The warmer it gets, the more I crave the beach, which reminds me of Hawaii. There is nothing better than sitting on the beach in Hawaii, soaking up some sun rays, and eating a fresh, juicy pineapple. I decided I would bring some of the island’s to my home with these amazing Hawaiian Bowls. They are simple to make, healthy, and tastes amazing. Now all I need is a Pineapple Dole Whip and some sand, and it will really feel like Hawaii.

I love all the fresh and delicious ingredients in this recipe. You can use frozen vegetables or pineapple, but I love the taste of the fresh vegetables. We also have an amazing Vegetable Stir Fry recipe that tastes amazing with the chicken and pineapple.

I don’t handle spice very well, so these bell pepper slices are perfect for me. They are sweet, full of flavor and go perfectly with this dish. We also love putting these peppers in our favorite Slow Cooker Chicken Fajita Tostadas.

Another Island favorite you HAVE to try, is our Huli Huli Chicken! Has all the pineapple flavor, and tastes amazing fresh off the grill. It marinates in the sweetest pineapple marinade that you are going to want to drink!
