We had a full-on Hawaiian night last week. I made Hawaiian chicken for dinner, pineapple upside down cake for dessert, and had found a recipe for homemade Hawaiian sweet bread in the bread maker! It was so good because as I mentioned before, I love pineapple! Anyways, this Hawaiian chicken recipe comes from my aunt, and I have no idea where it originated. Her most important piece of advice is to follow the recipe exactly. If you don’t have the correct amount of something, it really changes the texture and flavor of the meal, and not usually in a good way.
- 4 chicken breasts boneless, skinless
- 1 can pineapple rings
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 tbsp cornstarch
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 cup vinegar
- 2 tbsp chili sauce
- 1/3 cup ketchup
Preheat oven to 350
Drain juice from pineapples into small saucepan
Reserve pineapples for garnish
In small bowl, combine water and cornstarch
Gradually stir into pineapple juice
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until smooth and thickened
Add brown sugar, worcestershire sauce, vinegar, chili sauce, and ketchup
Simmer 3-4 minutes
Place chicken in 9×13 baking dish and brush with glaze
Bake 30-40 minutes
Garnish with pineapples and extra glaze
**This recipe requires a lot of constant stirring when you make the sauce, so I usually try to set out all the ingredients before I start.
