Oven-Baked Pininyahan Manok

Oven-Baked Piniyahan Manok is my easy version of the Filipino classic chicken with pineapple recipe. Instead of cooking this stovetop, arrange the marinated chicken, pineapple and rest of the ingredients in a casserole baking pan. Cover and bake. Serve this sweet-savory meal with rice.

  • Oven-proof casserole baking pan


  • 2 pounds chicken thighs, bone-in, skin-on, about 6 pieces
  • 1 can (15 oz.) pineapple chunks, drain and reserve juice for marinating
  • 1 ¼ cups pineapple juice from canned chunks
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 whole medium-sized onion, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled, minced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved, or use 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 1 whole medium-sized green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 whole medium carrot, peeled, sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons patis (fish sauce)
  • ¼ cup milk

For serving:

  • steamed rice


To marinate the chicken:

  • Drain and reserve the pineapple juice from the canned chunks. This will yield about 1 ¼ cups.
    In a bowl, pour the juice over the chicken cuts.
    Season with salt and black pepper.
    Cover and marinate for 4 to 6 hours, refrigerated.

To oven-bake the chicken:

  • Preheat the oven to 375 F degrees.
    Grease the casserole baking pan with cooking spray.
    Arrange the chicken pieces in the baking pan.
    Pour the chicken broth,and the pineapple juice all over the pieces.
  • Scatter the onion slices, minced garlic, tomatoes, sliced bell pepper, carrots, and pineapple chunks over the chicken.
    Sprinkle the patis (fish sauce) all over.
    Cover the entire casserole pan with aluminum foil.
    Bake in the preheated oven at 375 F for 55 minutes or when chicken is completely cooked.
  • At the end of cooking time, while the casserole pan is still in the oven, remove the foil.
    Pour the milk over the cooked chicken pieces. Use a long cooking spoon to incorporate the milk into the rest of the liquid.
    Continue baking for 5 more minutes, till chicken pieces are brown.
    Serve warm with rice.
