Real Simple is the best!

I have a subscription to Real Simple magazine, but I find myself with limited reading time these days. So, I mainly thumb through to find recipes. I'm never disappointed. The most recent recipe I found that I've used quite a bit is for a kind of no-fry fried chicken:

3 T of pineapple juice
1 T of chile garlic sauce (I couldn't find chile garlic, so I use a sweet chile sauce)
3/4 c bread crumbs
3 T canola oil
4 chicken breasts

Preheat oven to 450. In a bowl, mix the pineapple juice and chile sauce together. In a separate bowl, combine the bread crumbs and canola oil.

Coat the chicken with the juice/sauce mixture (I just put the juice and sauce in a bowl that has a lid, put the chicken in, and shake it all up). After chicken is thoroughly coated, coat each piece with bread crumb mixture.

I put the chicken on a cookie sheet, but any sort of baking dish will do. Cook at 450 for 12-15 minutes. Chicken turns out perfect everytime!

Last night, I served the chicken with mashed potatoes and asparagus. Talk about good eats!

    I tried out out the chicken recipe. We got it all ready only to find out the gas company turned off our gas to the house. hmm...we do pay our bills. Anyway as a last resort we threw it on the grill on some foil and it still tasted great!! Thanks for sharing the recipe!!
