"Sauce was good. I also cubed the chicken and used pineapple chunks instead of slices."

"Hi Sgronholz, did you serve it with white rice or would try it with any rice? Calorie conscience here."

"I cubed the chicken breasts and used pineapple chunks instead of slices, then served the mixture over rice...yum! My husband thought the lime flavor was a bit on the strong side, so I'll tone it down a little the next time I make it; however, we both enjoyed it."
