If you’re like me, I always get a craving for something sweet and tangy together. Who ever thought of mixing the flavors of barbecue and pineapple together, I thank you.
You are a genius.
Usually when I think of pineapple in a dish, I go right to teriyaki.
I came across this dish and decided to make it and…
Oh. My. Goodness.
It’s so easy to make also.
Just three simple ingredients.
- 4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast’s
- Barbecue Sauce (We are a Sweet Baby Ray’s family, so we chose that)
- One (or two) cans of diced pineapple. I went with two.
Sprinkle your chicken breast with some salt and pepper on each side.
Cover each side of your chicken breasts with some barbecue sauce
Drain and add your pineapple chunks over top of the chicken and layer with barbecue sauce again. (My mouth started drooling here.)
Let chill for 1-2 hours.
You don’t have too, but I think it adds some extra flavor. The pineapples really soak the barbecue sauce up during this time.
Bake at 400 Degrees for 40 minutes or until chicken is cooked through at 165 Degrees.
Add some additional barbecue sauce on top (optional), and serve!
I could make this recipe every week. I think it’s one of my new favorites. Along with my Slow Cooker Shrimp Scampi
Did I also mention it’s a healthy recipe?!
