"I thought I might have to refrigerate long than 30 minutes to get full-flavor, but because of time restraints I couldn't and it was very good just as stated. I used red wine vinegar because of an allergy, but everything else as printed; it took about 30 minutes to get done using breasts that I cut thin. Everyone really enjoyed it!"

"It wasn't that the flavor of this was bad; it did have a nice taste. But it took 45 minutes to cook, was cooking mostly submersed in liquid (could the chicken have let off that much water?) and the chicken didn't brown at all. Overall a disappointment."

"This was really good. I used pineapple tidbits instead of crushed pineapple because that's what I had on hand. I think I ended up having too much pineapple juice. The juices were really runny. The pineapple was the best part of the meal though. Next time I'll try the recipe with the crushed and see if that makes a difference. The flavor was good. My only complaint is my chicken took 50 minutes to cook at 350 degrees and I had even butterflied my chicken breasts to make them thinner."
