I place the cream cheese on a plate and microwave it for about 25 seconds to get it soft. You want the cream cheese soft so you don't have lumps of cream cheese in your dressing.
Drain pineapple well. Place in a colander and use the back of a spoon to press on the pineapple to release the juices.
I love using a rotisserie chicken because it's already flavored and it's easy. You can substitute 3-4 cups of shredded/chunked chicken in place of the rotisserie if wanted.
