  Garlic salt 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Honey 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Grapefruit juice 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)

1. Place chicken breasts in a large frying pan or kettle. Blend cinnamon, curry powder, garlic salt and honey in a 2-cup measure; stir in grapefruit juice; pour over chicken; cover.
2. Simmer, stirring liquid in bottom of pan often so honey won't scorch, 20 minutes, or until chicken is tender.

4. Stir pineapple and syrup into liquid in pan; brush over chicken.
