MY REVIEW

This looked and sounded so good, and the reviews were so enthusiastic, that I had high expectations for this recipe. Unfortunately, I could not taste the pineapple at all, even though I used a mild honey BBQ sauce. My husband was surprised when I told him there was pineapple in it. I will try it again, but will change the relative amounts of the BBQ sauce and pineapple.

Loved this!!!! The flavor is wonderful and the chicken is outrageously tender and juicy....a given being thighs and slow cooked. This goes in my favorite recipe file!

Not bad.. not great. Flavors were good. Would I make it again? Maybe.

OK boys and girls...this is a keeper. I didn't end up crumbling the bacon over it in the end...because I forgot...and because it tasted great without it! It had a hint of the bacon already. My mother was over and had it as well...and really liked it the way it was. I used only boneless chicken breasts. Everything else was the same. One reviewer said they wish they had drained the pineapple juice because it was too juicy...yet I wish there was MORE juice in mine! :) I'm def. doubling the juice portion and probably adding the pineapple juice next time! Yes...there WILL be a next time. Served over rice with a salad. Husband ate two helpings.
