In a large skillet, over medium heat, cook bacon strips until crispy. Place the cooked bacon on a cutting board and reserve the bacon fat.
Pat chicken breasts dry with a paper towel and season both sides with salt and pepper.
Add the chicken breasts to the pan and cook for 5-7 minutes per side, or until the chicken is cooked thoroughly and the internal temperature of the chicken breast reaches an internal temperature of 165F degrees.
Place chicken breasts on a plate to rest.
Cook the diced shallot in any remaining grease until softened (or add ½ a tablespoon of olive oil or butter if there isn't enough bacon fat left.)
Stir in the bbq sauce, pineapple chunks, chicken broth, soy sauce, brown sugar and garlic powder. Cook on medium high heat for 2-3 minutes or until the sauce is bubbly and thickened. Remove from heat.
Chop the bacon and stir into the sauce. Return the chicken breasts to the pan and spoon the sauce over the tops. Garnish with the sliced green onions and serve immediately.
You can use any bbq sauce you like, store bought or even homemade works as well.
We use shallots in this recipe. If you cannot find shallots, you can use a finely diced sweet onion.
Pineapple chunks work best, but you can also use tidbits for smaller pieces. Do not use crushed pineapple.
Make sure the pineapple is completely drained before adding it to the pan.
Make sure your chicken is cooked thoroughly before removing from pan. The chicken's internal temperature should be 165F degrees.
This can be served all by itself, over rice, with steamed broccoli or a side salad!
