Hawaiian Baked Chicken
Hawaiian Baked Chicken is a fantastic and simple baked chicken dish. The sweet and tangy flavors of the pineapple and spicy brown mustard are the perfect flavor pairing.
Our family has a love/hate relationship with chicken thighs. We all love them and Uncle Bee hates them. hehe. So I very very rarely make them. If and when I do it is usually when he is travelling or has other dinner plans or I have him something as back up. This Hawaiian Baked Chicken recipe caught my eye in an old taste of home cookbook and I knew I had to give it a try…you know… for the blog 😉
We absolutely loved it! We served it over some Vigo Yellow Saffron Rice with the pan sauce and oh my gosh it was good. Dare I say even Uncle Bee liked it and I didn’t even have to make him his back up Hot Pocket I had on stand by? LOL!
The Sweet and Tangy flavors of the pineapple & spicy brown mustard are a match made in heaven! I want to try to make wings and drumsticks this way soon! Yum!
