Tips (I followed the recipe as written, zero changes)
- *My chicken breasts took longer to bake and reach 165 degrees f., approximately 40-45 minutes (the recipe states 25-35 minute baking time). Be sure to adjust cooking time according to the size of your breasts and how hot/fast your oven bakes.
- Use more pineapple if you like, you can also substitute the green pepper with red or yellow or do a mixture.
- The recipe makes a lot of sauce, more than I used for serving, so feel free to add more chicken, up to 2 to 2 1/2 pounds total.
- Chicken tenderloins would work well with this recipe.
- Use homemade ketchup and/or homemade condensed tomato soup.
