Oven Barbecued Chicken With Pineapple

Diana Rattray
Pineapple and purchased barbecue sauce combine to make this easy and flavorful baked chicken recipe. Serve these tasty chicken legs with rice and your favorite vegetable side dish or a salad.


  • 4 to 6 chicken leg quarters
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce, spicy or mild, your favorite
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons cold water
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced crystallized or candied ginger, optional


Sprinkle chicken pieces with salt and pepper.

Heat oil In a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken pieces and cook, turning to brown all sides.

Arrange the browned chicken in an 11x7-inch baking dish (or larger). Combine remaining pineapple and barbecue sauce in a small bowl. Combine flour and water in a cup and stir to form a smooth paste. Stir into the barbecue sauce mixture along with the ground ginger and candied ginger, if using. Pour the sauce over the chicken pieces. Bake in a preheated 325° oven for about 1 1/2 hours, or until chicken is tender and juices run clear. Baste with sauce occasionally while the chicken is baking.
Serves 4 to 6.

greeeeaaaaat, Member eldbailey1

This recipe was great. Even though I did not have any ginger, I subbed it for nutmeg and paprika. My family loved it.
