- Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Saute in 4 tablespoons butter until slightly brown. Cover and cook 25-30 minutes or until done, turning occasionally.
- While chicken is cooking, cook noodles and drain well. Mix with 2 tablespoons butter and salt and pepper to taste.

Although I cut the recipe in half, I did follow it, but did just barely cook the mushrooms & the 2 of us were treated to a great-tasting chicken dinner! It's wonderfully flavored entree's like this that I enjoy making for special company, so I'll definitely keep hold of this recipe! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in I Recommend recipe tag]
This is really good, and not too sweet with just a hint of pineapple. I made a few changes: used b/s thighs, and didn't realize until I opened the can I bought pineapple chunks rather than slices. Also forgot to get mushrooms which the rest of the family didn't mind (I am the only one who eats them.) so I added 1/2 an onion rather than 2 Tbs to mix the the crumbs and top the chicken; and used egg noodles since there wasn't any specified. With the changes made (missing mushrooms only one to affect the flavor) this was really tasty! Will definately make again and add the mushrooms, everyone else can pick them out ;) Made for Photo Tag March 2010.
