Chicken is one of the easiest, versatile, and most common dinner ingredients in my kitchen. (Check my out my previous chicken recipes) But you have to spice your everyday repertoire from time to time. This recipe is the result of one of those spice-things-ups.

Pairing chicken with pineapple isn’t that common in my kitchen, but thankfully no one is against it either. So when it came to this recipe, I wanted to balance the sweetness of the pineapple, so I used a delicious smoked cheese. Then I spiced it up with nutmeg, pepper, cayenne pepper and a generous amount of turmeric, hence the bright yellow color.

For the side dish, I chose french fries and vegetables, but rice or mashed potatoes are perfect too!

  • 1/4-1/2 tbsp Turmeric
  • 1 1/2 cup Smoked Cheese grated


  • Pre heat the oven.
  • Cut the tendes off of the chicken breasts. (They're perfectly thin enough so there is no need to slice them furthermore.)
  • Slice the chicken breast about 1/2" – 3/4" thick slices.
  • Sauté the chicken breast slices in the 1 tablespoon butter. About 3-4 minutes per side.
  • Add the spices to the chicken while they're sautéing. Makes sure that all slices and both sides of them got enough and even amount of spices.
  • Put the sautéed chicken breast slices into a casserole.
  • Mix the heavy cream with the chicken broth, and 1/2 cup of the grated smoked cheese.
  • Pour the heavy cream mixture onto the chicken slices.
  • Lay the pineapple slices evenly onto the chicken.
  • Top them with the smoked cheese.
  • Bake it on 350-360° for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese melts and get a nice golden color.

I have actually made a pineapple chicken curry before and that was pretty good, I’d have to swap the chicken out with quorn chicken now or something, but I’m sure it would still taste amazing!
