Hawaiian Sweet Chicken

A crisp baked chicken coated in a yummy sweet  Hawaiian sauce made from pineapples, brown sugar, soy, red pepper, and garlic then baked to perfection, so no need for take out when you can make this healthy dish thats easy to put together. Place this over rice or the rice on the side and you have a weekday meal that I will guarantee everyone will love.

This dish is so good and all of the ingredients you will have on hand in your kitchen already. This is even great for a party of if you are having guests over for dinner, you can place in a big dish with lots of rice and this is a dish this looks great and tastes incredible. I found this recipe and I knew this is another great recipe that I had to make we loved it and now I have to share with everyone, its that good.

Ingredients For The Chicken:

  • 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1½ cup cornstarch
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • ¼ cup canola or vegetable oil
  • Ingredients For The Sauce:
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • ½ tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 red pepper chopped
  • 1 (20 oz) can pineapple tidbits, drained
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 13x9 inch baking dish and set aside. Cut the chicken breasts into bite sized pieces and then season with salt and pepper
  2. In 2 seperate medium sized bowls, place cornstarch and slightly beaten eggs. Dip chicken into cornstarch then coat in egg mixture.( People ask the cornstarch first, yes this is correct.)
  3. Heat canola or vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken until browned. Make in several batches. Do not over crowd the pan or you will not get the crispy chicken you want, it will be soggy if you put it all in.  Place the chicken in the prepared dish.
  4. In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together pineapple juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, minced garlic, and cornstarch. Add the red pepper and pineapple tidbits. Pour over chicken and bake for 1 hour.
  5. Stir the chicken every 15 minutes so that it coated them in the sauce. After the chicken is done cooking you can serve over rice or rice on the side.
