- 1 Package Chicken Legs
- 1 Box Minute Rice, White
- 1 Jar Grape Jelly
- 1 Jar Chili Sauce
- 2 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
- 1 Can Pineapple Slices
- 1 White Onion, Sliced into Rings
- 1 Green Bell Pepper, Sliced
- Season All
- Cooking Spray
- Empty the jar of grape jelly into a mixing bowl.
- Empty the jar of chili sauce into the mixing bowl with the grape jelly.
- Pour two tablespoons of lemon juice into mixing bowl.
- Using a hand mixer, thoroughly mix the ingredients until no longer lumpy.
- Set the mixture aside.
- Take the chicken legs out of package and rinse under cool water.
- Season the chicken with Season All or your mix of salt and pepper.
- Dip one chicken leg at a time into the jelly, chili sauce and lemon juice combination.
- As you dip each chicken leg, place it in the oiled baking pan.
- Using the remaining mixture, pour over the chicken.
- Take pineapple slices and put one on top of each piece of chicken.
- Pour the pineapple juice into the baking pan.
- Place slice onion rings on top of chicken in between the pineapple slices.
- Cover with foil to cook half way through. This will keep the pineapple and onion from overcooking or burning. At half way through, uncover for the last half of cooking and add the bell peppers.
- Bake until the chicken is completely done.
- Once the chicken is done, make the Minute Rice. Add a tablespoon of butter as the rice fluffs.
