    @Anonymous, thank you for pointing out this typo. I have edited the recipes and the directions now indicate what to do with the pineapple slices.

    Thanks. I see you made a few more corrections as well. Recipe I used said to cook chicken 12-15 min, which wasn't long enough and no mention of cooking 5 more minutes putting lennon on top. Makes more sense now.

    Anonymous, here at Food on the Table we strive to carefully proof read, test, and edit our recipes before making them public to the users. But even after checking and double checking sometimes typos still get through or directions may seem unclear. After you posted the question about the pineapple, I went back and thoroughly read over this recipe and felt that the previous cooking times listed would not be long enough to fully cook the chicken and adjusted the times to be more realistic. So I apologize for any confusion this typo may have caused when you first made this recipe and thank you for your comments and bringing this to our attention so that it could be fixed.

    I really enjoyed the sauce this created. I think the lemon slices were a waste, as it added little to no flavor to it. Otherwise it was an enjoyable dish.

    Made this last night; because of my kids I scaled back a little on the mustard. Did find that it was kind of flat in the flavor area - but it was edible. I am new to the site and really liking it. I probably won't make this chicken again, but it was different and worth the try.

    Easy to make. Chicken stayed very juicy and fork tender. Not as sweet as I expected it would be, which I also liked.

    @ Chef Heather - I believe someone was looking into how I can go back and look at past meal plans because when I start a new one, I cannot find the recipes I had in the past if I didn't know enough to add them into my cookbook. Were you (or whoever had said they were going to look into it) having any luck coming up with an answer of how to? :-). We have introduced a lot of new food to our kids and the site is very helpful in stirring imagination in the kitchen. Well worth the membership.

    Oh another question - uploading pictures of the meals when we cook them? Is that possible? So many of the recipes are missing pics and you might get some good ones from those of us who are cooking the dishes at home. I'm just sayin . . . ;-)

    Hi Jan! Currently you can not view past meal plans (which is a feature we hope to add in the future) but if you click "My Meal Plan" then "Select Your Recipes" and then click on "See All Recipes" then "My Recipes" at the bottom of this page you can see recipes you have added to your cookbook, a history of recipes you have added to your meal plan, etc. If you are still having trouble finding those recipes you previously used please let us know and I can try to help you search for them or I can have someone from customer support contact you directly.

    70 calories for a serving? As much as I would love for this dish to be so low-cal, 1 5-ounce chicken breast alone is easily over 100 calories. I completely understand that the software-generated numbers can't be precise. However, a ball-park figure would be so helpful. I can't even rely on it for that, so I end up doing all of my own manual calculations. :(

    Hi Arwen. Yes you are right, by my rough estimates the nutritional information should be higher for this recipe. With that said (and as you noted), we have a disclaimer statement above the nutritional information that states that we use a software program to calculate the information shown and with all computer programs cannot guarantee it's accuracy. If you need exact nutritional information I would recommend you continue checking the data against other resources or consulting a nutritionist.

    I am making this tomorrow evening and I noticed that the photo itself is NOT a piece of chicken but in fact a pork chop, a meat that I will be using in place of chicken if I find that I like this recipe.

    Hi Anonymous! I agree with Chef Leslie that fresh pineapple would work as a great substitute for the canned in this recipe. However, since this particular recipe uses the juice found in the canned pineapple to make the sauce for this dish; you will want to make sure and have about 1/3 cup pineapple juice or orange juice on hand, or puree some fresh pineapple, to use in the sauce.

    This was good, I prefer it with crushed pineapple. It gives the sauce a little more oomph. Unfortunately, my children were not fans. They all prefer meat and fruit separate.

    I made this dish tonight and the family loved it. Very tasty sauce indeed! I changed it a little bit since it is 115* here in Arizona and I won't use my oven just yet. I grilled the chicken & pineapple and made the sauce on the stovetop and added some chopped cilantro to it too.

    Great tips, Lenore. Grilled pineapple is delicious and when it's 115 degrees, I can't blame you for not wanting to add heat to your house!

    I used Honey Dijon mustard and doubled it because I took out the Worcestershire sauce. Add a squirt of lemon juice to the mix and use fresh pineapple instead. Delish!!!

    Made it in a tagine with red onion, red bell pepper and fresh pineapple. I seared the chicken to seal in the juices then cooked it at low heat for 25 minutes. It was a hit! Yummy over brown rice.

    Hi Wayne! You can cook the sauce in the pan for a longer amount of time, which will cause it to reduce down into a thicker sauce.
