This is a quick and easy way to prepare Pineapple Roasted Chicken. You can easily alter it, as you can see I did below…

Pineapple Roasted Chicken

  1. Slice two onions and lay on a sheet tray.
  2. Remove the backbone and wing tips from a whole roaster chicken. Season all over with kosher salt and black pepper. Place it skin side up over the onions.
  3. Slice a lemon into 4-6 rings, squeeze juice over the chicken and then slide the rings under the chicken. Repeat with lime. I didn’t have a lime, so I dusted with concentrated lime powder. Also repeat with orange. I didn’t have an orange, so I sprinkled granulated orange peel.
  4. Place a few slice of bacon over the chicken. It doesn’t need to be completely covered, in fact, it’s better if it’s not. Then a few slices of pineapple over the bacon. Roast at 425 deg F for about 45 minutes, or until internal temp is 165 deg F and/or juices run clear.

The chicken really absorbs the fruit flavor and the fruit absorbs the bacon flavor. I serve it with the pineapples and onions, but not the bacon. It is wonderful with just a side salad.
