I created this dish one night when I was in a particular hurry. There is hardly any preparation involved, and everyone who tries it asks for the recipe.—Becky Lohmiller, Monticello, Indiana

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced pineapple, drained
  • 1/3 cup shredded Swiss cheese, optional

Directions

  1. Flatten chicken to 1/2-in. thickness. Pour salad dressing into a shallow bowl; dip chicken in dressing. In a large skillet, heat oil. Add chicken; cook over medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. Remove and keep warm.
  2. Add pineapple slices to the skillet; cook for 30 seconds on each side or until lightly browned. Place a slice on each chicken breast half. Sprinkle with cheese if desired.
