I guess I can review the recipe that you stole from me!!! I really enjoy this dish and it can also be made in a crockpot and using raw chicken!! If you use raw chicken in the crockpot, you have to have the crockpot set on high to insure that the chicken reaches a high enough temperature quickly. It is a real time saver! I've also thrown all the ingredients into a freezer bag to pull out and put in the crockpot at a later date, so I guess this could actually be added to OAMC list!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 cups cooked chicken (3-4 skinless, boneless, breasts)
  • 4 cups of your favourite pasta sauce, or more if you like it really saucy!
  • 1 (19 ounce) can pineapple tidbits
  • 4 cups your favourite uncooked pasta
  • Top with

  • 2 cups grated cheese, marble works well
  • 1 dash oregano


  1. Cook Pasta until tender.
  2. Drain pineapple.
  3. Combine rest of ingredients, place into casserole dish and top with cheese and oregano.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
  5. Great with garlic bread or cheese toast.
  6. **for OAMC: label and freeze after step 3. Defrost overnight and bake covered 45-60 minutes or until heated through. Uncover and bake an additional 5 minutes, if desired. To bake from frozen, double baking time.
