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
Very bland. Even with marinating for several hours. Would not cook this again. - 18 Jul 2008
This is more of a warning than a review. PLEASE BE CAREFUL WITH THE RUM YOU USE! I used some 151 proof rum. About 3 before the cooking time was up, after the rum was added, there was a huge boom, I thought something hit the side of my house - like a meteorite or something! I turned to look at my oven and saw the door open! The fumes from the rum must have built up. This could have been very dangerous, thank goodness no one was near. Oddly,neither the casserole nor its lid was damaged or even moved. This is not how I hoped this recipe would be a big bang - I have to admit that the flavouring was rather bland with skinless boneless chicken breasts. - 18 Jul 2008
