My husband loved this, and he really dislikes baked pineapples AND baked chicken. I added some seasoning (garlic, red pepper, and paprika), used thighs and added sweet and sour 5 minutes before cooking time was over. Definately repeatable.

I have to admit that the flavouring was rather bland with skinless boneless chicken breasts.

Very tasty. Just poured the sweet & sour sauce on chicken before adding the pineapple and rum. Added about 25 min. cooking time. Will be cooking this regularly.

The recipie seems incomplete (it doesn't mention the sweet and sour sauce), and just guessing what to do with it and when to add it to the mix didn't work out to well. This tasted pretty bland. I don't plan on cooking anything with Al's name on it again.

I found this receipe to be a lot of wasted time!!! I found this receipe to be a waste of GOOD RUM!!! You can't even taste the RUM, I wanted to tell you that if you are going to make this dish you have to adjust the RUM in this dish!! The whole thing is that you can omit the RUM by putting in Rum flavoring, while you put in the flavoring don't put in too much!!!

thought this was quite good. I used boneless breasts, cruzan rum, and fresh pineapple. LUX, calm down hon. :) Could use a bit more spice, I added some hot sauce after...

Very bland. Even with marinating for several hours. Would not cook this again.
