“A really tasty dish that is neither too "pineapple-y" or too overwhelmed by spices. This is either a wonderful dinner dish or a great party item. You'll be the hit of any pot luck. It couldn't be easier to make, and you can even substitute chicken wings for the breasts and turn this into a mouth-watering appetizer. The scent of this dish cooking will have your family or friends salivating. Serve with rice or couscous and ENJOY! (Note added: Please add more seasoning if you like. One review notes this is tasteless which it certainly is not. But common sense in cooking calls for the chef to make sure a dish is seasoned to taste before taking it off of the stove.) NOTE: For a diet requiring limited fats and cholestrol, remove skin and fat from pan once the chicken had cooked, and reduce the amount of canola oi.”
