You know, it’s almost May, and since grilling season has yet to “officially” start, I went ahead and used the oven for this super easy, 3-ish ingredient recipe.

BY THE WAY! Do you count oil, salt, and pepper as ingredients? I mean, they technically ARE, but they also belong in every.thing you make, so they’re kind of like a given. NO? What do you think? Let me know! I’d LOVE to know what the popular opinion is on that. ❗❓

HOW TO PREPARE PINEAPPLE CHICKEN WITH BARBECUE SAUCE:

Basically…

  • First, you’re going to season the chicken with salt and pepper;
  • Then, you’ll add some barbecue sauce (I highly recommend my Homemade Honey Barbecue Sauce! ) over the chicken breasts, rub it all in, pile all the pineapples on top, cover with plastic wrap and let chill for a bit. Like, for about 30 minutes to 2 hours. You don’t have to do that, but it does bring the flavor up several notches.
  • When ready, take the pineapple barbecue chicken out of the fridge, drizzle with olive oil and boom! I mean, first BAKE, then BOOM! Bake, then appreciate.

  1. I add baby corn, sliced water chestnuts and serve it over rice with some steamed broccoli! Love the fact that you can switch this up with anything you want to add! This time I used teriyaki flavored BBQ sauce! Awesome recipe!!

      I serve it with a side of broccolini or roasted cauliflower, but it tastes really, really good served with mashed potatoes or rice. 😊

      HI!
      There’s an “Add To Favorites” button toward the top, before the beginning of the post, under all the sharing buttons. I also have the same button located toward the bottom, right underneath the recipe card. Do you not see it? Please let me know so I can look into it.

          Hi!
          Yes, definitely. Just don’t leave chicken soaking any longer than say overnight. Too long in marinade and the chicken will be tough and stringy.
