Aloha Chicken (M, TNT)
Source: "Quick & Healthy," Volume II by Brenda J. Ponichtera
Serves: 4

1 small can (8 oz) unsweetened pineapple slices, packed in juice
1 tsp. chopped garlic
1 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 1 lb.)

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Drain pineapple, reserving the juice. Combine juice with garlic, cornstarch, Worcestershire, mustard and thyme.

Arrange chicken in an 8" x 8" pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Pour juice mixture over chicken and bake for 20 minutes. Spoon juices from pan over chicken.

Add a pineapple slice to each chicken piece and return to the oven for 5 minutes.

Poster's Note: I usually serve this with white rice and a vegetable on the side. It comes out perfect every time. I usually use a bigger can of pineapple because I like more juice in the sauce. I have also used different kinds of mustard, and sometimes substitute garlic powder for the real thing. It still turns out good.
