Hawaiian Chicken!!!

This "Hawaiian Chicken" got two thumbs up from my family!!!  It is so tasty and turns out tender and juicy!!!  It's super easy, but still seems special enough for company.  With the pineapple and ham, it could even be served as a one of your main courses for the holidays!!!

 It's also great with almost any sides you want!  I served it with scalloped potatoes here, but it would also be great with rice!!!

 Here is what you will need for this:

6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
6 slices of bacon
6 slices of thin deli ham
6 slices provolone or Swiss cheese
6 pineapple rings
Teriyaki sauce (I used Kikkoman)
seasoned salt
black pepper

Spray a 9" x 13" baking dish with nonstick spray.  Place the chicken breasts in the dish.  Put about a teaspoon of teriyaki sauce on each chicken breast.  Sprinkle each with seasoned salt and black pepper.

Place a slice of deli ham on each chicken breast.  Cut each slice of bacon in half and crisscross a piece on each chicken breast.  Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 40 minutes.  

Remove from the oven and dash with a little more teriyaki sauce on each chicken breast.   Place a slice of the cheese and a pineapple ring on each chicken breast.  Place back in the oven for 10 minutes.   Remove from oven and spoon some of the pan drippings over each chicken breast just before serving.

It is important to follow these steps exactly, because from my experience, if you put the cheese on at the beginning and not at the end, it will melt away in the oven and dissipate.   If you place it on for only the last 10 minutes, it melts but stays on the chicken.
