My mother used to make this. As children, we used to pick out the onions, but now I find the combination very good.
I normally use whole bone-in chicken pieces, but it also works well with breast filets or tenderloins. You may have to bake for less time using boneless.

How to Make Pineapple Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Wash and dry chicken pieces, and arrange them in a metal 9x13-inch baking pan. Brush with the oil or butter and season with salt and pepper. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Stir cornstarch into juice until well-dissolved. Pour over chicken.
  3. Toss the pineapple chunks with the onion wedges, and arrange over and around chicken. Bake for 35-45 minutes, until chicken is well-browned and juices run clear. Baste with some of the pan juices a few times during baking. Place chicken pieces on plate and spoon pineapple-onion mixture over, with some of the sauce. Sprinkle with green onion tops to serve.
  4. This is good served with rice or orzo pasta, and sauteed green beans with mushrooms.
