Recipe by Mimi in Maine

This is truly a wonderful accompaniment to ham that was served at a very nice local restaurant. It is served warm at the table--delicious. By changing the pineapple to chunks, it can be make for chicken.

I followed your recipe right on down & served this twice, the first time as a dip for a ham-&-tortilla wrap, & that was delicious! Next it was as a sauce over baked chicken breasts ~ Outstanding! Now we're looking forward to having it as a dip for some homemade chicken tenders! Thanks for sharing this great recipe! [Made & reviewed in Bargain Basement recipe tag]
