Just okay
--Chicken a la Pineapple

Chicken a la Pineapple
Church Potluck Carry-Ins and Casseroles Copyright 2006

½ cup sugar
½ cup water
½ cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons oil
1 20-ounce can crushed pineapple
1 teaspoon ginger
½ teaspoon garlic powder
3 pounds boneless chicken

1. Combine ingredients, blending well.
2. Place chicken in greased 9x13-inch baking dish.
3. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours, stirring occasionally.
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

Serves 8 to 10

I made half this recipe. I wasn't prepared and I didn't marinate this ahead of time but I let it sit for about 15 minutes before baking. It was still pretty good, although nothing all that special. I can think of better things to do with chicken.

I think this will be a nice go-to book when I'm looking for a homey casserole. It's got all the classics and few fresh (to me) recipes too.

Sorry, I don't have much to say. I had a busy evening. I cooked two new recipes but it's difficult to find the time to document them. I'm trying to catch up while watching The War on PBS but it's hard to do two things at once and there are no commercial breaks.

Blast From The Past: Cheese-Stuffed Jalapeños from April 2007. Someone asked where they could find this recipe. There it is! It's a good one.

Question of the Day: Are you watching The War?

I think DH is recording it upstairs, we record a bunch of stuff and just watch when we can (thankfully we have several DVR's).
