Pineapple Chicken

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by LizP5885

I got this recipe from Taste Of Home years ago and it was a family favorite for a long time. For some reason I had not made it in forever. We got back from Hawaii and I wanted to make a dish commemorating the trip and remembered this recipe. I made it and it was as delicious as I remembered. I hope you all enjoy it as much as we do!

Loved it! Though I made a few changes...omitted dijon mustard (didn't have any) and added 1 tsp of each: tarragon, poultry seasoning and ginger. (Needed more spice for my taste) Thanks for sharing this one!
