I had a recipe years ago when I was first married for Pineapple Chicken. I modified it slightly and have been preparing this recipe ever since. It's a hit with my family! When you're tired of the same chicken dishes, try this one! It's refreshingly different. Very good served with rice, and a sprinkle or two of soy sauce, if desired.
