Italian Pineapple Chicken

I created this dish one night when I was in a particular hurry. There is hardly any preparation involved, and everyone who tries it asks for the recipe.—Becky Lohmiller, Monticello, Indiana

    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.
