Winner Winner.. Pineapple Chicken Dinner!
2 pounds of chicken
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tbsp flour
3 pats of butter
3 tbsp light soy sauce
1 cup pineapple juice
20 oz can of crushed pineapple (drained)
1 tsp black pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Melt butter in a small saucepan set over medium heat. In a medium-size bowl, stir flour with sugar, then whisk into melted butter. Stir in pineapple juice. Keep stirring with whisk for about 5 minutes until the sauce becomes thick and bubbly. Add in soy sauce and pepper.
Lay chicken in pan and pour sauce over chicken. Bake for 30 minutes, and then add crushed pineapple to pan, pushing pineapple pieces into the sauce. Bake for another 20-25 minutes, basting a couple of times until tender.
Serve over rice.
*** This is an adaption from a crock pot recipe that I made last week. I did not prefer the crock pot version and waited to share the recipe until after I'd converted it. This recipe is basically two recipes that I'm familiar with, rolled into one. I was quite proud of myself for coming up with it and will be making it again!
