Ingredients
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    salt
  • 1/4  cup 
    all-purpose flour
  • 12  4  ounces 
    skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4  cup 
    margarine or butter
  • 1  20  ounce can 
    pineapple tidbits (juice pack)
  • 1/2  cup 
    dry sherry
  • 2   cups 
    sliced celery
  • 1 1/2  cups 
    sliced onions
  • 2   tablespoons 
    all-purpose flour
  • 2   cups 
    fully cooked ham, cut into thin strips
Directions
1.
Stir together the 1/4 cup flour and the salt. Roll chicken pieces in flour mixture to coat.
2.
In a 12-inch skillet cook the chicken, half at a time, in hot margarine or butter until chicken is brown, turning once. Transfer chicken to a 13x9x2-inch baking dish, reserving drippings in skillet. Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree F oven for 25 minutes.
3.
Meanwhile, for sauce, drain pineapple, reserving juice. Add sherry to drippings in skillet. Cook and stir over medium heat, stirring to scrape up browned bits. Add pineapple tidbits, celery, and onions. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, about 5 minutes or until celery starts to soften.
4.
Combine reserved pineapple juice and the 2 tablespoons flour; stir into the sauce mixture in the skillet. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat.
5.
Spoon off any juices from chicken in the baking dish. Sprinkle ham over chicken. Pour sauce over all. Bake, uncovered, about 10 minutes more or until chicken is tender and no longer pink. Makes 12 servings.
Make Ahead Tip
  • Prepare chicken as directed, except bake, uncovered, (without sauce) for 35 minutes (instead of 25 minutes) or until tender and no longer pink. Cool slightly. Drain. Cover and chill for up to 2 days. Prepare pineapple sauce as directed, except do not pour over chicken. Cool slightly. Transfer to a storage container; cover and chill for up to 2 days. To reheat, sprinkle ham over the chilled chicken and bake, covered with foil, in a 350 degree F oven about 40 minutes or until chicken is heated through. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan cook and stir the sauce over medium heat about 15 minutes or until heated through. Pour the sauce over the ham and chicken, and serve immediately.
