Let's Make It
Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Dissolve cornstarch in 2 Tbsp. reserved juice; set remaining juice aside for later use. Cook chicken in Dutch oven or deep large skillet on medium heat 5 min. or until evenly browned, turning occasionally. Stir in dressing, remaining pineapple juice, pineapple chunks, sugar, cloves, cinnamon stick and bay leaves. Cover; cook 20 min. on medium-low heat or until chicken is done (165ºF).
Meanwhile, cook bacon in medium skillet until crisp; drain. Return bacon to skillet. Add ham, onions and garlic; cook on medium heat 5 to 8 min. or until onions are golden brown, stirring frequently.
Add cornstarch to chicken mixture; cook and stir 1 min. or until sauce is slightly thickened. Discard cloves, cinnamon stick and bay leaves. Reserve 1/2 cup bacon mixture. Add remaining to chicken mixture; mix well. Serve topped with reserved bacon mixture and parsley.
Serve with hot cooked rice.
Prepare using 6 small boneless skinless chicken breasts (1-1/2 lb.), reducing the initial chicken cooking time to 15 min. or until done (165ºF).
