This is AMAZING! My daughter went back for seconds, that never happens! I cubed the chicken, added more pineapple, sweet bell pepper to the mix and a splash of white wine to deglaze the pan. It made for a light sauce. Served over basmati rice. YUM! I cannot wait to make this again! I haven't been this excited about a recipe in a very long time. Thanks Chia!

Mmmm, this was really good. I didn't think cinnamon and pineapple would work together, but that spice rubbed chicken tasted perfect alongside the glazed pineapple. I wilted some baby spinach in the sauce for extra nutrition, and served this with cilantro lime rice. It was a great meal.
I didn't give it a five b/c I had to halve all the spices... otherwise I HAVE to confess it's addictive AND delicious AND excellent! YOWZA!!!! When I first put it in the pan, it was hard to be in The kitchen, so beware - but when I tasted it, it was AMAZING!!!! What an impressive dish this is with out a lot of work! I added red sweet peppers to contrast the pineapple and it was excellent!
I served it over white rice which I mixed with finely chopped cilantro (Emerald Rice - we call it) and it brought the chicken to another level.
I love it sooooo much that I'm making it again tonight!
THANK YOU for sharing w/ us this awesome dish!
