This was a pretty good recipe. I actually cut the recipe to a third because there was only 2 of us. I made minor adjustments, but I don't think it affected the taste. I did not use any onion and I used fresh pineapple (with juice from said pineapple) instead of canned. The chicken was moist but not soggy. Overall there was good flavor, but I was not completely sold on the ketchup flavoring of the sauce - therefor resulting in 4 stars.

Was gonna cut this recipe down some, but after reading the ingredients I decided to go whole hog & make it all, & I'm glad I did, because, even though there are just 2 of us here, the leftovers were very, very satisfying! I did serve it with a side combo of brown rice & peas! Many thanks for another great keeper of a recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
