Hawaiian chicken tacos blend the savory

### Ingredients:
– **For the Chicken:**
– 1 lb chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
– 1/4 cup soy sauce
– 1/4 cup pineapple juice
– 2 tablespoons brown sugar
– 1 clove garlic, minced
– 1 teaspoon ginger, grated
– Salt and pepper, to taste

– **For the Tacos:**
– 8 small flour or corn tortillas
– 1 cup diced pineapple
– 1 avocado, diced
– 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
– 1 jalapeno, sliced (optional)
– Fresh cilantro, for garnish
– Lime wedges, for serving

### Instructions:

1. **Marinate the Chicken:**
– In a bowl, combine soy sauce, pineapple juice, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken pieces and marinate for at least 30 minutes, or overnight for best flavor.

2. **Cook the Chicken:**
– Heat a pan over medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade (reserve the marinade) and cook until browned and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes. Remove and set aside.
– Pour the reserved marinade into the pan, bring to a boil, and reduce until thickened. Return the chicken to the pan and toss to coat.

3. **Assemble the Tacos:**
– Warm the tortillas on a skillet, grill, or microwave.
– Place a scoop of chicken on each tortilla, followed by pineapple, avocado, red onion, and jalapeno if using. Drizzle with a bit of the reduced marinade if desired.

4. **Garnish and Serve:**
– Garnish with fresh cilantro and serve with lime wedges on the side.

This recipe combines the sweetness of pineapple with the savory depth of soy sauce marinated chicken, offering a delightful fusion of flavors perfect for a casual dinner or a festive gathering. Enjoy!
