Hawaiian Chicken

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.

Recipe Notes

**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.
