- Season both sides of chicken with some salt& pepper and some cinnamon to taste.
- Saute chicken in oil about 5 minutes per side or until cooked through and no longer pink inside- but still moist.
- Spoon pineapple mixture over each serving and serve immediately.
- If you prefer, you may instead grill chicken.
My family had different views on this recipe. We all liked it to some degree; some more than others. I plan to make it again, and do some experimenting with it.The chicken was very moist and tender! The cold pineapple, onion mixture is the part that raised the eyebrows. I think that if the onions and pineapple were sauted and served warm, my family would enjoy it better.
