    Marinated overnight in small can crushed pineapple, soy sauce, salt, lemon juice, & Johnny's "Jamaica Me Crazy" spice. Sauteed one onion finely chopped, before chicken. My son added soy sauce. We loved it. - 2/3/09

    I've made this several times and each time I tweak it a little to my own preferences, which everyone here who has left such negative comments can do too! I think the recipe as is was good too! Sometimes we want less sweet and more heat, other times the opposite...loved it! - 5/16/09

    This was amazing! After reading everyone's reviews, I seasoned the chicken with cayenne pepper, garlic salt, and pepper. I used a red bell pepper for color, and a plantain instead of a banana, no almonds. The dish was beautiful and it was a perfect pairing of sweet and spicy. Thanks for sharing! - 11/17/08

    Me and my boys really liked this. I used fresh garlic and ground ginger instead of the powders. Sauteed one small onion before adding the chicken, then added celery, green onions and cilantro. Very tasty! - 11/23/08

    This was a hit at my house and will definitely become a regular on the menu!! The only thing I have to question is the accuracy of the nutritional info. The info is based on 6 servings w/4 oz of chicken, which would be 24 oz., however, the recipe only calls for 1 lb of chicken, which is only 16 oz - 11/13/07
