Directions

  1. Drain pineapple; reserve 1 tablespoon juice. Chop 2 pineapple slices; set aside for rice.
  2. Mix together reserved juice, garlic powder, thyme, nutmeg, allspice, salt and cinnamon in small bowl, until blended.
  3. Arrange chicken on foil-lined sheet pan. Season with salt and pepper. Rub each breast half with spice mixture over and under the skin. Place two pineapple slices on each breast. Bake at 350 degrees F 30 to 40 minutes, or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 165 degrees F and is no longer pink in center (Note: if using chicken legs, time will need to be increased 15 to 25 minutes).
  4. Cook olive oil, red onion and red pepper over medium-high heat in medium saucepan about 5 minutes or until onions are tender. Add rice and chopped pineapple to sauce pan, cook 3 minutes more. Add chicken broth, heat to boiling. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 15 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed. Add chopped basil; let stand 5 minutes before serving.
  5. Arrange rice and chicken on 4 plates for service. Garnish with additional chopped basil, if desired.

Made this just for my husband and I because I wanted to test it before making for guests. We loved it! Next time I will use the remaining pineapple juice when making the rice and will reduce the chicken broth by that amount. Will do this just because we really like pineapple and I think it will add to the rice. I used boneless chicken but I think this would also be great with skin. I hesitated about making this because the other review was SO negative but then realized the reviewer hadn't even made the recipe!

Please proof-read your recipe better: Ingredients calls for boneless, skinless chicken breasts, but instructions say to rub spice mixture over and under the skin. What skin? Mine? :D
