Emra's Pineapple Chicken

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by LMillerRN

This is awesome. My friend brought this to me after both of my children were born. I absolutely love this dish. I have also made this using pork chops. This cooks slow. The chicken just falls apart. I have also made this on the stovetop. Serve over rice.

The recommended cooking time of up to two hours is much, much too long. I baked it for 30 minutes at 310 degrees, and it was adequately done throughout. I then added the pineapple and just baked for an additional 5 minutes to heat through. I didn't use cornstarch to coat the chicken but used flour, cornmeal, salt, and pepper instead. I also added 1/2 tablespoon of cornstarch to the sauce to thicken it a bit during baking.
