  • 6 slices bacon, sliced into small strips

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 1 tart apple, chopped

  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth

  • 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained and juice reserved

  • 1 (8 ounce) can pineapple rings, drained and juice reserved

  • 2 tablespoons tomato puree

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ tablespoons curry powder

  • salt to taste

  • 5 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded to about 3/4-inch thickness


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

  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute bacon, onion, and apple in hot skillet until onion is slightly softened, about 5 minutes.

  3. Stir chicken broth, reserved pineapple juices, tomato puree, flour, and curry powder into bacon mixture; bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, stirring often, until flavors blend and sauce thickens, about 10 minutes. Remove skillet from heat; stir crushed pineapple and salt into curry sauce.

  4. Place chicken in a single layer in a glass baking dish. Pour curry sauce over the chicken.

  5. Bake chicken in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 30 to 35 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Garnish with pineapple rings.
