Big Island Express Chicken. I made this over the weekend, and it was a big hit with the whole family. My husband even had seconds, and he doesn’t like chicken much. I was dubious about adding bananas and pineapple and cooking it for another 30 minutes, but it gave the dish a nice fruity tropical flavor.Big Island express chicken with pineapple
