When I was in elementary school, my mother and I used to go out to eat every Sunday night, and the meals were always the same: my mother would get a chicken Parmesan dinner, and I would get a chicken sandwich. I loved my chicken sandwich, and it wasn’t until years later that I learned that there was some secret recipe that made it taste so good.

As the name of this blog suggests, my cooking is a little bit different from yours. I make my food very tropical, and not just because that’s my favorite color. I am very sure you will love all the recipes I’m about to post, since I try to keep them very interesting, delicious, and healthy.

If you’re looking for a recipe for a savory chicken dish, look no further than this one. The flavors of the main ingredients are irresistible, and you’ll enjoy the taste of the chicken when you’re ready to eat it. Just be sure that there’s plenty of it left at the end of the cooking time, as the recipe yields enough for a hearty meal.

Hawaiian chicken is a delicious chicken dish that takes just 45 minutes to prepare. This dish, like pineapple chicken, is sweet, tangy, and tropically flavorful, as it combines golden brown chicken with pineapple. To make an outstanding meal with a creamy, thick sauce, just mix the ingredients in a skillet with the chicken stock and tomato ketchup. To transport you to Hawaii, serve Hawaiian chicken with a light side like a bowl of rice or a salad.

Hawaiian Chicken Recipes

This Hawaiian chicken dish is a lot simpler to make than you may imagine. Begin by chopping the cleaned chicken into medium-sized pieces and searing them in the pan. Set the chicken pieces aside after golden brown and add the green bell pepper and pineapple to the pan to sauté for a few minutes. Combine brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic, salt, ketchup, and paprika in a small dish, then pour into the pan and stir. Allow the chicken stock to come to a boil before adding the chicken pieces, covering with a lid and cooking for 15 minutes.

Tips

– You may use any vegetable oil in lieu of the olive oil.

– You may modify the chile level of the Hawaiian chicken to your liking by adding or subtracting sweet paprika.

– You may prepare this amazing dish with just the breast or thighs of the chicken. This preparation also turns out nicely with skinless and boneless chicken pieces cut in to small cubes.

— While the chicken is cooking, make a cornstarch slurry to thicken the sauce. To make the cornstarch slurry, combine 1 teaspoon cornstarch with 1 tablespoon water until the cornstarch dissolves completely and there are no lumps.

– Make a coconut marinade for a more tropical taste. Allow the chicken to marinade overnight in a mixture of soy sauce, coconut milk, sesame oil, brown sugar, and garlic.

– Hawaiian chicken may also be baked. In a safe-oven pan, combine all ingredients and bake at 325°F for approximately 1 hour, stirring the chicken periodically.

Serving Suggestions for Hawaiian Chicken

Instructions

Clean and trim the chicken in a neat manner. With a sharp knife, cut the chicken into even-sized medium to large pieces. In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chicken pieces to the saucepan and cook them until they are golden brown. All of the chicken pieces should be flipped and seared on the other side until golden brown.
