Polynesian Chicken

This recipe came from my neighbor in Fort Worth. We shared the same name and the same wedding anniversary! I always think about her when I make this dish.

Polynesian Chicken

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 can pineapple chunks (in juice, not syrup)
1 can tomato soup
1 sweet onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1/2 stick butter
hot, cooked rice

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Melt butter in 9x13 dish in oven. Add chicken, onion, and green pepper to the butter and cook (uncovered) for 25 minutes. 

Meanwhile, drain pineapple juice into a bowl and set pineapple aside. Add tomato soup to pineapple juice and stir to combine well. 

Add pineapple to the chicken/veggies in the dish. Stir well. Pour tomato/pineapple mixture over all, and cook for 20-25 more minutes. Serve over rice.
