Very successful...everyone in the family liked! (which is quite a trick) We had some leftover crushed pineapple in the freezer which I used instead of pineapple chunks and it turned out just fine. Really easy to make.
OK, I screwed up on this one. I cut the recipe in half but I definitely put in W-A-A-Y too much chili sauce. It was very, very hot (used chili garlic sauce). We liked the flavor of the dish and the chicken was very moist, so next time I'll be more aware of how much chili sauce I put in. There will be a next time because we grow our own pineapples so I freeze the extra. I'm always looking for recipes that use pineapple that I can use during the year and yours will be made again. Thanks for a keeper!
Really wonderful. I used chicken breasts on thr bone- 3 large halves-. I also iu sed sweet thai chili sauce instead of the heinz . Really outstanding recipe!! The chicken came out tasty, moist and delish-- I served this with coconut jasmone rice. Thank for this recipe.
