Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine pineapple juice with the oil, white wine, soy sauce and dijon mustard, and mix well.
  2. Lay the chicken pieces in a large oven-proof dish (I love the aluminum disposable pans) and top with the pineapple chunks, diced onion, sliced mushrooms, red bell pepper, and green olives (if using). The green olives, although are optional, go together really well with the pineapple and provide a wonderful contrast.
  3. Top with the pineapple juice mixture, and cover with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in a preheated 450 degree F (230 deg C) oven for 1 hour, then reduce to 400 deg F (200 deg C) and Bake for an additional 1-1.5 hours, or until chicken is done (cooking time will depend on strength of your oven). Turning the chicken over once through cooking will ensure that the chicken absorbs the flavor of the sauce.
  5. When chicken is done, remove the foil and turn the broiler on for 5 min to crisp it up.
  6. Optional: You can reduce some of the sauce in a pan and pour that over the chicken when serving.
