I made this for the second time today. The first time I made it, I didn't notice that it says "salt to taste" at the bottom! Nothing I did fixed it, but I was intrigued so tried it again. I have to laugh at myself, because I did mess up again! For some reason, I misread when I was supposed to use the cumin and cinnamon. Anyway, this is what I did: I only used 3 pretty large boneless chicken breasts (we don't like dark meat and there are only 3 adults and 1 toddler); I mixed 2 teaspoons each cumin and cinnamon and some salt, mixed the chicken with that (that was the mess up!), I had also cut the chicken into chunks. I also browned it in olive oil; seems like in Spain, olive oil would normally be used (that's my thinking), sprinkled an additional teaspoon each of cumin & cinnamon, then stirred in the onion, but used 2, and tons of garlic minced. Added the reserved pineapple juice, salsa (used 3/4 cup), tomatoes and olives. I tasted before adding the cornstarch and added some black pepper and cayenne, then tasted. Then I added the pineapple (salted) and the red pepper strips. Served over rice cooked in chicken broth with a salad. Delish! However, you notice I had to use much more seasoning and my daughter wasn't crazy for it. That's why I'm giving it a 4, since I had to "doctor" it up.
