Ginger and crushed pineapple flavor tender juicy chicken in this main dish recipe from Marcille Meyer of Battle Creek, Nebraska. Orange marmalade and lemon juice add just a hint of refreshing citrus tang. "It's simple to put together, low in fat and tasty, too," she says.

Forgot to mention I baked it in a cast iron skillet and put it under the broiler for the last 2 minutes to blacken the chicken and pineapple just a bit.

Made this on Saturday. Hubby requested it again on Tuesday! I did replace the soy sauce with low sodium Worcester sauce and added a teaspoon of Sticky Fingers Memphis BBQ sauce to give it some kick. Great recipe!
