  • 10 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 2 cups dry bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup prepared mustard
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 10 pineapple rings

Rinse chicken breasts and pat dry. In a shallow dish or bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, flour, oregano, salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat; dredge chicken in bread crumb mixture and brown in skillet, about 3 to 4 minutes each side. Layer chicken in 2 lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dishes.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).


To Make Sauce: In a large saucepan over low heat, combine the brown sugar, mustard, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, onion, salt and water. Mix well and bring to a boil. When sauce is boiling, pour over chicken and cover baking dishes with aluminum foil.


Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear. Let cool, garnish with pineapple rings and serve.
