Chicken and Pineapple Supreme | www.tasteandtellblog.com

I got so close to running out of recipes to post several months ago. I just wasn’t cooking a whole lot. Then the cooking bug caught me again, (it seems to come in waves), and I had a whole bunch of recipes in my folder, waiting for their time here on my blog. I thought I’d never catch up. Well, I guess I lost the cooking bug, because now I’m running out again!! It’s strange for me to go and type up a post, only to see 3 other recipes waiting to be posted. I guess I need to get into the kitchen again!

This recipe didn’t end up quite like it was supposed to. There is supposed to be some broccoli under that cheese, but it didn’t make it into this final dish. I had broccoli in the freezer, and that’s why I didn’t add it to my grocery list. But I guess I don’t know how long it had been in the freezer, because when I took it out and cooked it, it looked so sad, and the color did not look good. So into the garbage it went. So instead of Chicken, Broccoli and Pineapple Supreme, I got Chicken and Pineapple Supreme!!

My husband loved this one. I just thought it was ok – I think it was missing a little something. (Maybe the broccoli?? :) ) But he ate it right up. In fact, he ate his serving and whatever I didn’t finish of mine. So it can’t be too bad!

Chicken and Pineapple Supreme
adapted from Pillsbury 30-Minute Meals

serves 4

total time: 30 minutes

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
2 tablespoons butter
1 (8-oz) can pineapple slices, drained
4 oz (4 slices) provolone cheese

Place 1 chicken breast half between 2 pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper. Working from the center, gently pound chicken with a meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick; remove wrap. Repeat with remaining chicken.

In a shallow pan, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Coat chicken with the flour mixture.

Melt the butter in a large skillet. Add the chicken, cook about 10 minutes, or until chicken is fork tender and juices run clear, turning once.

Place a pineapple slice on each chicken breast half. Top with a cheese slice. Cover; cook an additional minute or until cheese is melted.

    I kept looking at the picture for the broccoli. I finally read down to the recipe and realized it was pineapple not broccoli. Too funny!

  2. Deborah says:

    Sarah – how funny – I totally titled it wrong and didn't even notice! I've fixed it now.

  3. Maria says:

    Chicken and pineapple, what a fun dish!

  4. Arnold says:

    Looks just grand, I can see why it was all eaten up. This is easy to make and I will definitely give it a try. Thanks.

  5. Holly says:

    Looks like something I would like-I wonder if a little teriyaki sauce would have been good?? I love pineapple and teriyaki together, just a thought:)

  6. kat says:

    I bet the pineapple would be great with the chicken & I love the other commenters teriyaki idea..

  7. Joanne says:

    I have to say, I love the idea of the pineapple combined with cheese. And broccoli would definitely be a great addition! Next time…

  8. Debbi Does Dinner Healthy says:

    This looks great! Maybe next time grill the pineapple and/or the chicken for a different flavor. I like the teriyaki idea too. Maybe mix a bit of teriyaki and pineapple juice to marinate in? hmmm. Lots ideas, I'm going to print this. Thanks!

    i go through the same thing, i think i have a million recipes to post, and next thing i know, i have none! this looks awesome, i love the chicken/fruit combo.

  10. grace says:

    oh, the broccoli would've ruined it! yes, the vibrant green would've made for a nice picture, but it would've spoiled the flavor of the dish completely for me. i think it looks phenomenal as is!

  11. Muneeba says:

    I certainly wouldn't have minded the broccoli … but I can understand why u left it out! Still, I like the sweet component here :)

  12. Simply Life says:

    wow, that looks delicious!

  13. Virginia says:

    I make a dish that is pretty close to this one that is always a hit. I marinade the chicken breasts in teriyaki sauce for 1/2 to 1 hour and then bake in the oven. I usually baste it at least once. Put the pinapple slice on top when chicken has about 10 minutes left of cooking time. Remove from oven, add cheese and cover with foil a few minutes so it gets soft. Note…if you put the cheese on and put back in the oven it melts fast and will fall off your chicken. Serve with teriyaki sauce from baking pan.

    Very juicy and very yummy!
