Hawaiian Baked Chicken image

When I was a young girl my mother made a much more simplistic version of this recipe on a regular basis. It's inexpensive with very few ingredients. I have since taken her basic recipe and reworked the sauce to make it more to my taste. This sauce is to die for and is best served over white rice. Thanks mom :)

Time 1h20m

Number Of Ingredients 17

1 large whole chicken cut up, or chicken thighs trimmed
1 large can pineapple chunks
1 small onion
1 small red bell pepper
1 small green bell pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
pinch salt and pepper
1/2 jar(s) sweet & sour sauce, kikkoman
1/4 c brown sugar
1 Tbsp white or rice wine vinegar
1 Tbsp soy sauce, low sodium
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 c catsup
1 pinch ground ginger
1/4 tsp onion power
1 can(s) crushed pineapple


  • 1. Prepare approximately 2.5 lbs chicken pieces by trimming, rinsing and pat them dry. Place in 8x13 glass baking dish sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Season Chicken with salt and pepper.
  • 2. Drain pineapple chunks reserving juice for another application. Spread pineapple chunks over chicken.
  • 3. In medium sauce pan combine vinegar, brown sugar, sweet & sour sauce, soy sauce, catsup, minced garlic clove, ginger, crushed pineapple & onion powder together. Bring to a simmer for 5 minutes and shut heat off.
  • 4. While sauce is cooling cut the remaining veggies into bite size pieces and sprinkle evenly over chicken pieces.
  • 5. Pour sauce over chicken pieces and cover with foil.
  • 6. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour then remove foil & bake for 20 more minutes to carmelize and thicken sauce slightly. Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes. As the dish sets the sauce will thicken slightly more and the chicken will become moist, tender and juicy.
  • 7. Serve chicken with white rice topped with sauce, pineapple & veggies. I also serve a side salad with this.
