We eat chicken several times per week, so we always experiment with new flavors and new recipes. If time is limited, I always suggest buying a bottle of either already made marinade or salad dressing and marinating the chicken while you’re at work. The flavor seeps into the chicken and when you get home from work, just bake for an hour and you’ll have a delicious flavored chicken.

In this article I’d like to share 2 fruit flavored chicken recipes and one herb flavored recipe. They are Italian Flavored Chicken, Pineapple Flavored Chicken and Apricot Flavored Chicken.

Mix together, pineapple, ginger and soy sauce. Marinate chicken in pineapple mixture for 2-3 hours. Saute garlic and onion in butter for a couple of minutes . Add chicken breasts and cover. Cook about 15 minutes. Add marinade to pan and bring to a boil. Cook until done. Once the chicken is done, add the milk, mix and cook a few minutes more.
