1/2 cup coconut shavings
3/4 cup walnuts
3/4 cup SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
1 tablespoon molasses
2 tablespoons Caribbean jerk seasoning

2 tablespoons SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

Preparation

Prepare the pineapples by washing and dividing them in half lengthwise; scooping out the pineapple and reserving the shells.

Toss the chicken, pineapple, and strawberries in a large bowl and set aside.

Caramelized Walnuts: mix jerk seasoning, stock, molasses and 3/4 cup of SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener together in a bowl. Pour in the walnuts, place them on a sheet pan, and bake them in the oven at 350 degrees F until golden brown and crispy.

Cool the nuts and add to the chicken mixture.

Tropical Dressing: mix all the dressing ingredients in a blender until smooth.

Pour the dressing into the mixing bowl with the remaining together.

Spoon the mixture inside the pineapple half shell, for presentation, and sprinkle with coconut shavings.
