Ingredients

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, thinly sliced

  • 1 (15.25 ounce) can pineapple rings, drained

  • 1 (8 ounce) package Monterey Jack cheese, thinly sliced

Directions

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

  2. Arrange chicken breast slices on a baking sheet in a single layer.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, about 20 minutes. Top each slice of chicken with 1 to 1 1/2 pineapple rings and a slice of Monterey Jack cheese.

  4. Continue baking in the oven until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

For more flavor, you can use the juice of the canned pineapple to marinate the chicken for 30 minutes before cooking.
