I've had this on my ever growing need-to-make list for a couple of months. I saw it from Deborah from Taste and Tell and I printed it right away. We all love pineapple here so I knew this would be good.
I was waiting until I had a REAL pineapple, not the canned stuff. I somehow managed to ignore the pineapple I had for too long and by the time I got to it, it wasn't looking too pretty so out we tossed it.
So I settled for the canned pineapple. My kids eat a ton of fruit so we always have it on hand.
This didn't disappoint. We loved it. I did glaze it with teriyaki before breading which was awesome. I didn't measure too much but was pretty liberal with the teriyaki.
I also opted for just 1/2 slice of cheese. It is 70 calories for the cheese and just didn't think it needed that much. Call me stingy with the calories!
This was a very easy quick meal that we will for sure make again!!

Chicken & Pineapple Supreme
Adapted from Taste and Tell
1 lbs. chicken (I had 3 equal sized boneless breasts)
2 tbsp. flour
2 tbsp. teriyaki sauce
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
3 pineapple rings (I used from a can)
1 - 1/2 slices provolone cheese
If your chicken is thick, pound between plastic wrap until it is even. Coat the chicken with the teriyaki sauce. In a bowl, combine flour, salt and pepper. Coat the teriyaki covered chicken in flour and place in a hot pan coated with cooking spray. Cook on medium until done, turning once. Place a pineapple ring on each chicken breast, top with 1/2 piece of provolone cheese. Cook an additional minute or until cheese has melted.
