Found this wonderful recipe looking for a way to use up a fresh pineapple, very delicious! I cut it back to two servings with two half chicken breasts, skinless and boneless. They browned perfectly in the butter, I added some snap peas to the other veggies with a jalepino pepper. I didn't have any Tia Maria but I did have some Kahlua which added a wonderful richness to the recipe. (Guess I wasn't quick enough to flambe it, couldn't get it to light but the taste was marvelous!) We will be doing this one again, thanks for sharing it!!
