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.
