This recipe tastes best with a Hawaiian style BBQ sauce, but if one isn't available, just use your own favorite. Every time I fix this, everyone LOVES it! There are usually no leftovers.

I just want to thank everyone for the comments on this recipe. I have enjoyed reading your reviews and so glad to hear that each meal was a success. It's one of my favorite dishes to fix. And by the way you can use whatever parts of the chicken you wish the editor of this site is the one that put chicken breasts on there. I usually use leg quarters. But it depends on whose eating it as to what I use (some people prefer white meat to dark). You might could even venture to try other types of meat such as pork or beef. If anyone tries it and likes it please let me know. Happy eating!:) Read More

I modified this recipe according to other reviewers' suggestions: I left out the potato and peppers; I let the chicken marinate in the pineapple juice and BBQ sauce for about an hour before cooking and I cooked the dish for 40 mins at 425. I prepared white rice as a side dish and it was a great compliment. I will make this again but next time I will use less pineapple juice. I would have liked the sauce left in the pan to be thicker. Overall this is a simple quick prep recipe using pantry items that I almost always have. I am also stingy with stars:) Thank you for sharing! Read More

EXCELLENT! I was attracted to this recipe by the combination of ingredients and the EASY prep! Talk about simple to put together (it took all of 10 minutes) and exceptional results! The aroma while baking in the oven was wonderful! I was a little leary of putting sliced potatoes in the dish but when served they were a nice compliment and I wouldn't skip adding them! The chicken was noticeably tender and cut with a fork - not sure if it was just fresh chicken or the pineapple juice which made the difference. I'm so glad I tried this recipe! YOU SHOULD TOO! You won't be disappointed! Nice presentation! I did used diced pineapple instead of sliced and put them on top of the chicken rather than on the side with the potatoes. I used Bulls-Eye Honey Mustard BBQ sauce. My husband couldn't stop complimenting this dish! Thanks ladies for a tasty recipe! Read More

I decided to try this recipe based on my pal KOALAGIRL's recommendation and I'm so glad I did!!!! I have to concur with her review. AWESOME! Yes line your pan with foil slice those 'taters as thin as you can and IMHO double up on the amount of pineapple juice or all you're going to taste is chicken in BBQ sauce.I've made this twice in two weeks and the hubby and kids are still licking their lips. This "easy-pleasey" recipe's going into our rotation for sure. Thanks Joy! Read More

10 STARS! This is awesome! I used chicken thighs instead of chicken breast but otherwise followed the recipe accordingly. Baked at 375 degrees for one hour. Even though I lined my baking pan with foil it still leaked and I see 3 days of soaking ahead. But who cares! This dinner was absolutely wonderful -- causal company worthy! I served with mashed potatoes because we had no red taters. Homey comfort food! You have got to try this one folks! Read More

WOW!!! This is one of the easiest and most delicious recipes I've ever tried. As others mentioned it smells wonderful while cooking. I used brown sugar BBQ sauce and I didn't have any red potatoes so I threw in a package of frozen mixed baby potatoes and other veggies and it turned out much better than I expected. The chicken was very moist and just peeled apart. Thank you for this recipe! Read More

This was great! The juices from the pineapple and the bbq sauce really kept the chicken moist. I thought the temp and time were too high and too long so I lowered both and I wish I had just listened to the recipe. I kept turning up the temp and I left it in for over an hour! Thanks for the great recipe:-) Read More

I read a variety of reviews before trying this recipe and I've made a few modifications myself as well. I've made it three times now once for a dinner party and it has been very well received every time. I add a bit of soy sauce Worcestershire and white vinegar to the sauce and reduced the pineapple juice. I add the vegetables only for the last 15 minutes of baking because they could indeed be soggy and overcooked if they sat in the sauce for the whole hour. Oh and I marinate the chicken in the sauce for 24 hours before cooking. In any case my family and friends and I LOVE this recipe! It's easy and delicious; I highly recommend it! Read More

I will make this again pretty tasty! I used chunk pineapple and probably would have added more than one can as I really liked the pineapple flavor. You definitely need to bake/parboil your potatoes. I microwaved mine a little thinking they would finish cooking with the rest of the ingredients but they were hard as a rock... we put them back in the oven for at least another hour. Hubby loved it will make it again. Read More
