One of our favorite ways to spice up chicken for almost 15 yrs now, and it smells sooo good while it cooks! I wouldn't normally put tomatoes and pineapple together, but it sure works in this recipe from "Betty Crocker's New Int'l Cookbook." It's not as much work as it might appear; most of the cook time is just stove-top simmering.
