GREAT TASTE! Easy for me, a beginner!!! Loved everything and I will definitely make it again :)
I followed the recipe pretty much as listed, except I didn't put the mushrooms under the ham and cheese. The chicken turned out tender and had a nice flavor with the ham and cheese. However, I just didn't feel the pineapple chunks belonged in this recipe. It was just a strange flavor when all together. There were so many flavors going on with the smoky marinade, the pineapple, ham, cheese, mushrooms - they just did not seem to come together. I think the pineapple was the mis-match. If I made this again, I would omit the pineapple and cut down on the marinade amount. It had a very strong flavor and I don't think was meant to be a sauce. Pam
