Some days I don’t mind spending an hour cooking dinner. But other days I want something with minimal prep time that I can just throw in the oven and forget about. This BBQ pineapple pizza is a recipe for those days. It is so quick and easy to throw together, that I can see this becoming a staple in my house. Plus it is so versatile and can be paired with veggies, a big salad, or even a whole grain side dish.
Start out by trimming and chopping your chicken into 1″ chunks. Then grab your baking dish and coat it evenly with spray. Place your chicken in the dish and season lightly with salt and pepper. Then cover the chicken with 1/2 of the bbq sauce. I then used a brush to coat the chicken evenly. Then top it off with the drained pineapple and the rest of the bbq sauce. I used the same brush to spread the bbq sauce evenly on top.
Now this next step is optional, so if you’re pressed for time feel free to skip it. I then covered the dish with plastic wrap and let it sit in the fridge for about 45-60 minutes. During this time I meal prepped some other foods for the week. This allows the chicken to marinade in the flavors a bit, but it’s completely optional.
Once you’re ready to bake make sure your oven is preheated to 400 degrees F. Remove the plastic wrap (if you let it marinade) and drizzle the olive oil on top. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken reaches 165 degrees. Serve immediately or store up for 5 days in the fridge.
