BBQ pineapple chicken


Tonight, I made BBQ pineapple chicken for dinner. I have always loved this combination and found this recipe to try. I made a few tweaks:

  • I marinated the chicken in BBQ sauce about 8 hours prior and then just topped the chicken with a little more when I baked it.
  • I didn't use the bacon because I forgot :) But, the recipe definitely doesn't need it.
  • I used fresh pineapple instead of canned pineapple.

Ingredients
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1 cup diced pineapple (from the can) + extra
  • 6 strips cooked bacon, diced
  • 1/4 red onion, sliced (about 1/4 cup) + extra
  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 2 green onions, diced
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Add chicken breasts to the casserole dish. Using a spoon, brush chicken breasts with BBQ sauce.
  3. Top with diced pineapple.
  4. Add chopped cooked bacon on top of the chicken.
  5. Top with sliced red onion.
  6. Top with shredded Mozzarella cheese.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes, uncovered, until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the center. Broil for the last 4 minutes if desired.
  8. To serve, top chicken with a small amount of extra diced pineapple, a little bit of remaining sliced red onion, and diced green onions.
