    It really is! At first I was like, "Ew! Pineapple and chicken?" LOL But they balance each other out. It's very tasty and it cooks up fast!

    If anyone doesn't eat ham, then a good tasting a;ternative is Turkey Bacon. It's also a lot healthier [​IMG]

    Kyles Fantastic Baked Chicken (compliments of my wonderful bf)

    6 chicken thighs (3 breasts)
    Butter (1/2 stick)
    Milk (1 cup- maybe more depends on your personal taste)
    Parmesan Cheese
    Swiss Cheese
    Bread Crumbs

    First: melt the butter in a pan, put the chicken in to brown...(doesnt need to be cooked all the way through, your going to bake)
    Second: Make the rice
    Third: prep the pan to bake in...layer the bottom with parmesan cheese and swiss cheese...cover with the rice...then the browned chicken...
    Do not throw away the butter sauce...now put in flour and whisk...once it is too your liking of thickness add milk to lighten it up...WHISK WHISK WHISK and make sure its boiling...otherwise it will taste like flour... then pour that onto the chicken ( make sure its completely covering the pan ) now take breadcrumbs and sprinkle as many as you like on top...to add a little extra crispyness melt some more butter and drip onto of the breadcrumbs so when it cooks it will make a crispy shell...

    Pre heat oven to 350 and cook for 35 mins...if the chicken was previously frozen add an extra 15 mins to be safe...

    Serves 4-6 depending on your choice of chicken...you dont have to use just thighs or breasts any part is good.
