Reviews for Italian Pineapple Chicken
"Very quick and dekicious."
"we've made this several times. I'm not fond of the swiss cheese, but it's easy to leave off. I can't make enough of the pineapple rings to satisfy the kids."
"Made this again. This time I substituted the pineapple rings for tidbits. I think it worked out much better. This is a very good recipe."
"Thought the combination of cheese and pineapple was questionable until I fixed this. It was very good. My husband raved about it throughout the entire meal. VERY easy and quick to fix, also."
