Pineapple Chicken

Put a layer of onion and potatoes in the bottom of my 12'' d/o, then added 4 thighs and 4 drumsticks, dumped a can of pineapple juice in and seasoned the meat.

Added a can of stewed tomatoes, some onion and bell pepper, then topped it with the pineapple rings.

Put some heat to it and let it cook for about an hour.

The last 15 minutes I added my favorite BBQ sauce and let it finish

I reckon I will be making this very very soon.
Looks great!

About ten years ago my daughter asked me if I could come up with a dinner dish that had pineapple. Not a dessert. Hmmm....

I bought a roaster, loosened the breast skin, put a pineapple ring under the skin on each breast, put the chicken on a rack and poured the pineapple juice into the bottom on the pan. S&P on the skin, and stuck it in the oven. When it was nice and brown, you could see the outline of the rings. Looked so pretty. I then took the juices, pineapple and chicken drippings and made a reduced sauce and melted a pat of butter in it for thickening. Her family raved about it all week. She made her own mashed potatoes. This was a recipe that I just winged on the fly. I wouldn't touch it. I hate pineapple. And a pineapple sauce on mashed potatoes did nothing for my appetite. I ate at home that day.

You are what you eat.

Yeh ''Charlie. A tradition from the days of being out on the range with the herd. Cookie (the cook) would put the food in the spider (what the pan was called if they had legs on them) and set it over hot coals and place more coals on the lid. Notice the lip around the edge of the cover. This was to keep the hot coals from falling off and burning the foot of Cookie when he removed it to check on the food. The whole thing is cast iron. The food cooks faster with this practice. Cowboys didn't want to wait for their grub. CI pots were the choice of all the Cookies out there on the range. It cooked the food fast and even over a campfire.

That looks tasty good. I don't have a dutch oven like you so I've been Googling how to make it using a large cast iron skillet instead. I found some recipes that I'll be trying soon. I wonder how I can add some sourness to make it sweet and sour chicken using the pineapple? Maybe I should look up that recipe separately.

White vinegar is used in sweet and sour sauce.
