A pineapple glaze that tastes truly Hawaiian flavors this chicken while it bakes by itself in the oven. Great with rice, a green vegetable, and a salad of crisp greens.


4 Chicken breast
2 tablespoons Butter or Maragarine; melted
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/8 teaspoon Pepper
3/4 cup Crushed Pineapple; drained, from 8-3/4 oz can
1 cup Brown sugar; firmly packed
1/4 cup Lemon juice
2 tablespoons Mustard
1 teaspoon Soy sauce

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



Preheat oven to 375. In an ungreased 9-inch square baking pan, place chicken breasts in a single layer. Brush with melted butter; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare glaze by combining all the ingredients together and mixing well. Pour over chicken. Return to oven and continue baking 30 to 40 minutes, basting occasionally until deep golden brown and tender.

It was just OK. I think I should have made rice with it instead of fried potatoes.

LOVE IT!!! chicken comes out so tender & full of amazing flavor! I substituted spicy brown mustard & cayenne pepper for a nice kick. Thanks for sharing!

Very good!! Chicken was tender. I added less sugar & mustard as reviews said but I think I'll make it exact next time. I think it would taste even better a little sweeter & with more mustard.

To clarify my review I baked the thighs 20 minutes then added glaze with another 30 minutes in the oven. My husband had three helpings. We did have white rice with green peppers and onions diced.
