Pineapple/BBQ Chicken

For a quick, easy, delicious meal... this one can't be beat.

4 chicken breasts, thin sliced
1 (20 oz.) can juice packed cubed pineapple, drained, juice reserved
1 bottle BBQ sauce
½ green pepper
½ red pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place foil in medium sized baking dish. Grease lightly.

Place the chicken in the baking dish. Arrange peppers and pineapple around the chicken. Pour the reserved pineapple juice all over. Top with BBQ sauce.

Bake 1 hour, or until the chicken juices run clear.

I serve this over white rice. The BBQ sauce combines with the pineapple juice to make a delicious "gravy".

** This recipe can also be made in the slow cooker. Just cook on high for 4+ hours until meat is tender.
