Pineapple Princesses began as a tribute to Ruby Borrowdale, the home economist behind the 'Golden Circle Tropical Recipe Book' tested in the Golden Circle kitchen and modified and updated in the Pineapple Princesses' test kitchens.
As Ruby said "pineapple is a versatile food" . . .
no fat, high in vitamin C and full of the flavour of Queensland sunshine. The blog continues as more and more pineapple recipes are discovered from around the world.

butter when turning. Arrange each chicken, skin side up, on greased hot plank.
Sprinkle with fine, dry breadcrumbs. Arrange a serving of cooked vegetables
around each chicken. Spread chicken with Sweet-Sour sauce and place in hot oven
for 10 minutes. Fill spaces with parsley and serve at once. (Note: Heat-proof
platters can be used in place of wooden planks).
Ruby's Planked Chicken
I can remember people using these metal plates in wooden
trays when I was young. Les says he recalls fish shaped ones used in
restaurants. A Sydney Morning Herald columnist recently suggested that they may be making a comeback. As I don’t have any “planks” I baked the chicken breasts and then
applied the breadcrumbs and sauce. Delicious!
Note: This wooden platter was turned by my father, Wal, many years ago.
