Cheesy Pineapple Chicken, Pininyahang Manok with Cheese. One of the most visited OPC recipe is my version of pininyahang manok, it is one of the first recipe publish when this blog was starting. The photo might not be as good but I assure you that was one of the best recipes that I had. Today I am sharing a cheesy version that I have cooked from scratch.

Cheesy Pineapple Chicken

The dish was inspired by a cheesy chicken dish I had recently. Most us Pinoy today love cheese and we have learned how to integrate it in to our cooking we do have a lot of cheesy Pinoy dishes that we love and example is our kaldereta. There are some version of pineapple chicken out there but I had said I cook it from scratch and of course base on our favorite pininyahang manok. Here is the recipe of another innovative dish, Cheesy Pineapple Chicken, Pininyahang Manok with Cheese.

1 small can evaporated milk
2 small size green/red bell pepper, cut into square
1 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
