Ingredients

  • 10 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • 2 cups dry bread crumbs

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 1 ½ cups packed brown sugar

  • ¼ cup prepared mustard

  • ½ cup ketchup

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • ¼ cup grated onion

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¾ cup water

  • 10 pineapple rings

Directions

  1. Rinse chicken breasts and pat dry. In a shallow dish or bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, flour, oregano, 2 teaspoons salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat; dredge chicken in bread crumb mixture and brown in skillet, about 3 to 4 minutes each side. Layer chicken in 2 lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dishes.

  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  3. In a large saucepan over low heat, combine the brown sugar, mustard, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, onion, 1/2 teaspoon salt and water. Bring to a boil, and pour over chicken. Cover baking dishes with aluminum foil.

  4. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear. Top each piece with a pineapple ring, and serve.
