    winkki's Note:

    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.

      Very different kind of recipe which my family and I really enjoyed. I do a lot of international cooking and came across this recipe while on a culinary trek across Central America (in my kitchen). It is very easy to make. It takes little effort on the cook's part since most of the time is consumed by Winkki said. Thanks for posting it, Winkki.

      I simplified this a bit, by using skinless, boneless chicken thighs, which reduced the cooking time. I also cut the recipe in half, except for the onion and garlic, and probably the tomatoes - I just put in some tinned ones, since it isn't exactly tomato season around here. I did use a fresh, very ripe pineapple, since they were on sale. (BECAUSE they were very ripe, ha! ha!) The result was tangy and delicious. I'll be making this again. Thanks, Winkki!
