Pineapple Chicken Surprise
Note: My son, Zack, who was a cook in the Marine corps, won 1st place in a competition with this one….it’s his own recipe and it is wonderful and so easy.
4 chicken breast, boneless
4 slices pineapple, keep juice
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1/8 cup brown sugar
Salt, black and red pepper, to taste
Aluminum foil, 4” squares
Place one piece of seasoned chicken breast in each foil square. Put one squirt of lemon juice on each piece of chicken. Set aside until the sauce is ready.
To make the sauce place soy sauce and pineapple juice in a skillet. Stir and heat until hot. Pour in the brown sugar and stir until the sugar is melted. Add the slices of pineapples and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Fold aluminum foil upward to form a cup shape.
Add 2-3 Tbsp. of the sauce and one slice of pineapple to the chicken. Add one pat of butter to each piece.
Close the foil and bake at 300 degrees for 50-6- minutes. Served wrapped.
