"This recipe is simple, delicious and can be prepared and cooked in one hour. It looks as if you spent the day in the kitchen cooking (at least my husband always thought so). I found this recipe in an American Heart Association cookbook back in the '70's."

"Good idea, nice taste but bad recipe. So here is how you can make it a 5 star rating. Use boneless chicken breast (salt and pepper and slightly brown in a skillet and don't use the flour). The flour makes it gamy unless you are going to fry the chicken. Since you are slightly browning the chicken cut the cook time to 30 minutes (instead of 45 minutes). Sprinkle ginger, garlic powder, and onion powder - in addition to the parsley. Then follow directions accordingly. NOW, it's 5 star -this is according to my husband who happens to be a chef :)
"I made this for a potluck; the only changes I made were "minor" ... I used boneless, skinless chicken tenderloins, and I added 1 onion, 1 red pepper, 1 yellow pepper cut into chunks (added after 30 minutes) just to give it a little color. If you really want to "kick it up" some and can find sweet chili sauce, it's a great condiment!"
"This was super simple and really tasty! I did add powdered ginger to it, to give it a little more kick. Next time, I may add garlic or garlic powder as well. The chicken stayed nice and moist, even when microwaved the next day. There weren't any leftovers with this dish, but next time, I may try to make chicken salad out of it. Thanks for posting!!"
"Followed recipe as written, none in the family cared for it. Flour gave the chicken a gummy texture."
"I used about 3 cups of leftover rotisserie chicken, and added 3 tablespoons of dried minced onion, and 1 teaspoon each of dried ginger and dried minced garlic to the sauce. I cooked the rice, then mixed together the rice, chicken, pineapple, and sauce, poured it into a casserole dish, sprinkled chopped almonds on top, and baked it for 30 minutes. It was very good; the grandkids liked it, and so did the adults. I will definitely make this again!"
"DH & I loved it. Kids.. not so much. I will make again for us though."
"So simple and my family loved it!"
"This recipe is made regularly in our household! It generally takes me less than 10 minutes to throw everything into the oven. I usually add an onion and a few cloves of garlic to kick it up a bit. The chicken breast is extremely moist and the sauce is so flavorful! Thanks for sharing such a quick, delicious recipe!!"
"What size can (how many ounces) of pineapple chunks should I have used for this recipe?"
"This recipe was EXCELLENT! Sooo easy to make! I used 3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts & 3 cups of rice & baked it in a 13x9 pan. The only thing I will do different next time is bake it in a smaller dish or double the recipe for the juice (sauce) so it covers the entire chicken. The juice (sauce) had such a great flavor! Definitely making again! It was even better the next day! Fed 2 adults & 2 kids!"
"I LOVE this simple, yet delish meal! My husband even said that it has the right amount of sweetness and told me add this to my recipe collection. :) I only had a can of crushed pineapples on hand, but I don't think any flavor was sacrificed. Also, I topped the chicken w/ slices of red onion before pouring the liquid. I think it added a bit to the taste and the presentation of the dish. Too bad we chowed down on it before I could take a photo! Thank you so much for sharing this one. Def a keeper!"
"This was very simple to make and very tasty served it over white rice. I used boneless chicken thighs and crushed pineapple as that is all I had on hand and it was great thank you for sharing."
"What a hit! I used a whole chicken cut up, and a package of drumsticks. Sauce was awesome! Added Cherries to it, and poored it over the white rice when served. Fed 2 adults & 5 kids!"
"Great Recipie! Very simple and quick to make. The chicken came out very moist and had excellent flavor. I served it over jasmine rice and it seemed to be a great compliment to it. A definate keeper!!!"
"I threw a little Hawaiian dinner party for my BF, and served this as the main course. The chicken was oh so moist, and the flavor was great. I am keeping this recipe for sure!! Thanks so much!!"
