  • Mix together reserved juice, garlic powder, thyme, nutmeg, allspice, salt and cinnamon in small bowl, until blended.

  • Arrange chicken on foil-lined sheet pan. Season with salt and pepper. Rub each breast half with spice mixture over and under the skin. Place two pineapple slices on each breast. Bake at 350 degrees F 30 to 40 minutes, or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 165 degrees F and is no longer pink in center (Note: if using chicken legs, time will need to be increased 15 to 25 minutes).

  • Cook olive oil, red onion and red pepper over medium-high heat in medium saucepan about 5 minutes or until onions are tender. Add rice and chopped pineapple to sauce pan, cook 3 minutes more. Add chicken broth, heat to boiling. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 15 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed. Add chopped basil; let stand 5 minutes before serving.

  • Arrange rice and chicken on 4 plates for service. Garnish with additional chopped basil, if desired.

Tips

*Substitution: Instead of 2 whole chicken breasts, you can substitute 4 whole chicken legs.

Made this just for my husband and I because I wanted to test it before making for guests. We loved it! Next time I will use the remaining pineapple juice when making the rice and will reduce the chicken broth by that amount. Will do this just because we really like pineapple and I think it will add to the rice. I used boneless chicken but I think this would also be great with skin. I hesitated about making this because the other review was SO negative but then realized the reviewer hadn't even made the recipe! Read More

Please proof-read your recipe better: Ingredients calls for boneless skinless chicken breasts but instructions say to rub spice mixture over and under the skin. What skin? Mine?:D Read More

I used what I had in my home. I didn't have pineapple rings so I used chunks. I liked the spicy rub paste. Very nice. I used brown rice and used the pineapple juice as others have suggested. I had split chicken breasts on the bone. It still turned out great. I Will make this again. Read More

I tried this recipe because it had ingredients that I like. But I did not like it. First of all the "rub" turned out like a paste which was too thick. The only change I made was I used chunk pineapple because that was all I had. I also followed the hint to use the juice in the rice (which turned out great.) I only cooked the chicken for 20 minutes because if you cook for the 30 to 40 minutes the recipe calls for it would be too dry. I will try this recipe again using bone in chicken thighs. Read More

Was not big on this recipe. The rice didn't have much flavor and the chicken had too much spice. The pineapple is what saved it. Read More
