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!

This is so yummy! I didn't have tidbits of pineapple so used chunks. Otherwise made as posted. I cut the recipe down to serve 2 and it worked great. I enjoyed the fruitiness of this dish while DH didn't. He's not crazy about having fruit with his meat. Thanks for posting. :)

Made for the *Pet Parade* event & I made my own hoisin sauce for it too using Recipe #312992 by Alskann. Chicken breasts here are lrg & thick, so I used my meat mallet to get them to cutlet thickness. I did use more oil than stated as I wanted the chicken crispy. Altho not in the recipe, I chopped the cranberries a bit & plumped them in the excess pineapple juice. The sauce is very thin & I decided at the end to mix 1/2 tsp cornstarch w/part of the liquid for a slight thickening effect & that worked well. All that said, this dish is so easy-to-fix & was a treat to eat w/fried rice. Thx for sharing your recipe w/us. :-)
