Like TeresaS I scaled this recipe down to two and served it with bone in breasts as that is what I had on hand. I made the initial sauce with a bit of extra juice and used that to baste the chicken breasts and served the remaining sauce reduced as directed as an accompaniment. I think this work better with crushed pineapple. Thanks!
