- 1/2 tablespoon of oil
- 4 boneless chicken breasts
- 2/3 cup BBQ sauce
- 2/3 cup pineapple juice
- 1 small pineapple (cut into chunks)
- 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
- 2 tbsp freshly chopped cilantro

- 8 soft taco shells
- Heat oil in a large frying pan (or spray pan with nonstick cooking spray) over medium heat.
- Season chicken with salt and pepper.
- Add chopped chicken to pan and cook until browned on all sides. This should take about 3 to 4 minutes.
- Pour BBQ sauce and pineapple juice over chicken. Heat until sauce thickens and chicken is coated evenly. This should take another 4-5 minutes. Be careful as the sauce may start to bubble.

- Distribute lettuce evenly between shells.
- Spoon chicken into warm tortilla shells (microwave about 15 seconds) and add pineapple mixture to top and roll them up.
