    DeSouter's Note:

    A really tasty dish that is neither too "pineapple-y" or too overwhelmed by spices. This is either a wonderful dinner dish or a great party item. You'll be the hit of any pot luck. It couldn't be easier to make, and you can even substitute chicken wings for the breasts and turn this into a mouth-watering appetizer. The scent of this dish cooking will have your family or friends salivating. Serve with rice or couscous and ENJOY! (Note added: Please add more seasoning if you like. One review notes this is tasteless which it certainly is not. But common sense in cooking calls for the chef to make sure a dish is seasoned to taste before taking it off of the stove.) NOTE: For a diet requiring limited fats and cholestrol, remove skin and fat from pan once the chicken had cooked, and reduce the amount of canola oi.

      This was super good! I modified a bit but it was still about the same. I only used half and onion and I chopped that and the celery very fine. Then I used bonless skinless chicken sauted in oil seasoned with S&P then cut bite size. I added a little lemon juice about a tsp and about 2 tsp soy sauce. Also I added about a tbsp of capers. I served it more as a hash with the rice, it was so so good

      This was a great recipe. I actually modified it to be a quick dinner. I sliced boneless skinless breasts and sauteed them in a small amount of olive oil to cook them. then I added about 1/2 cup of chicken broth and the juice from the can of pineapple. It was a fantastic light dinner with some rice and a salad. YUM!

      I found this pretty tasteless. There wasn't enough pineapple taste (or any taste) to it - I think next time I will omit the chicken broth and replace it with pineapple juice and see if this helps. My husband found it blah also. Sorry. On a positive note, the chicken was tender and I liked having the onions and celery in the dish.
