This is my easy Caribbean-style sweet and sour chicken. You can also marinade the chicken in the rum for an hour, then bake with the pineapples and sauce; this has the same effect!

Something else. My husband loved this, and he really dislikes baked pineapples AND baked chicken. I added some seasoning (garlic, chilli, and paprika), used thighs and added sweet and sour 5 minutes before cooking time was over. Definately repeatable. - 18 Jul 2008
