I just want to thank everyone for the comments on this recipe. I have enjoyed reading your reviews, and so glad to hear that each meal was a success. It's one of my favorite dishes to fix. And, by the way, you can use whatever parts of the chicken you wish, the editor of this site is the one that put chicken breasts on there. I usually use leg quarters. But it depends on whose eating it, as to what I use (some people prefer white meat to dark). You might could even venture to try other types of meat such as pork or beef. If anyone tries it and likes it, please let me know. Happy eating! :)

I modified this recipe according to other reviewers' suggestions: I left out the potato and peppers; I let the chicken marinate in the pineapple juice and BBQ sauce for about an hour before cooking, and I cooked the dish for 40 mins at 425. I prepared white rice as a side dish, and it was a great compliment. I will make this again, but next time I will use less pineapple juice. I would have liked the sauce left in the pan to be thicker. Overall, this is a simple, quick prep recipe, using pantry items that I almost always have. I am also stingy with stars :) Thank you for sharing!

this was awesome!! i added onions and i used yukon potatoes instead of red. i sliced them extra thin so they would definitely finish cooking. this really was great my boyfriend went back for THIRDS!! he ate until he felt sick!! if i can offer one tip...PLEASE LINE your baking dish with foil!! i made this 3 days ago and i'm still soaking my pan!!! it's worth it though!

EXCELLENT! I was attracted to this recipe by the combination of ingredients and the EASY prep! Talk about simple to put together (it took all of 10 minutes) and exceptional results! The aroma while baking in the oven was wonderful! I was a little leary of putting sliced potatoes in the dish, but when served they were a nice compliment and I wouldn't skip adding them! The chicken was noticeably tender and cut with a fork - not sure if it was just fresh chicken or the pineapple juice which made the difference. I'm so glad I tried this recipe! YOU SHOULD TOO! You won't be disappointed! Nice presentation! I did used diced pineapple instead of sliced and put them on top of the chicken rather than on the side with the potatoes. I used Bulls-Eye Honey Mustard BBQ sauce. My husband couldn't stop complimenting this dish! Thanks ladies for a tasty recipe!

I decided to try this recipe based on my pal KOALAGIRL's recommendation, and I'm so glad I did!!!! I have to concur with her review. AWESOME! Yes, line your pan with foil, slice those 'taters as thin as you can and IMHO, double up on the amount of pineapple juice or all you're going to taste is chicken in BBQ sauce.I've made this twice in two weeks and the hubby and kids are still licking their lips. This "easy-pleasey" recipe's going into our rotation for sure. Thanks Joy!

10 STARS! This is awesome! I used chicken thighs instead of chicken breast, but otherwise followed the recipe accordingly. Baked at 375 degrees for one hour. Even though I lined my baking pan with foil, it still leaked and I see 3 days of soaking ahead. But who cares! This dinner was absolutely wonderful -- causal company worthy! I served with mashed potatoes because we had no red taters. Homey, comfort food! You have got to try this one, folks!

WOW!!! This is one of the easiest and most delicious recipes I've ever tried. As others mentioned, it smells wonderful while cooking. I used brown sugar BBQ sauce and I didn't have any red potatoes, so I threw in a package of frozen mixed baby potatoes and other veggies, and it turned out much better than I expected. The chicken was very moist and just peeled apart. Thank you for this recipe!

This was great! The juices from the pineapple and the bbq sauce really kept the chicken moist. I thought the temp and time were too high and too long so I lowered both and I wish I had just listened to the recipe. I kept turning up the temp and I left it in for over an hour! Thanks for the great recipe :-)
