Is there any fruit that’s more “summer-y” than than pineapple? Ok,strawberries do give them pretty good competition. But, no matter what your favorite summer fruit is, it’s hard to to deny that whether you’re eating pineapples straight, grilling them up, or throwing them into a salad (or a smoothie!), the golden, tropical fruits scream summer. They’re good for you, too. Raw pineapple chunks provide manganese, vitamin C, fiber, magnesium, and copper.
Pineapples are delicious, sweet, pinecone-shaped plants grown most often in tropical countries like Thailand, Brazil, the Philippines, and Mexico. In the U.S., they only grown in one state: Hawaii. And, despite their name, pineapples are not related to apples at all. They actually look more like agave or yucca.

It’s hard to grow out of something so delicious, such as chicken nuggets. Unfortunately, pre-made chicken fingers are usually made with lower quality cuts of chicken and are deep-fried and packed with fat. This healthier breaded chicken fingers recipe is the grown-up version of chicken nuggets. I think you’ll like them even better than the fried and frozen variety.
