Hawaiian Pineapple Chicken

Hawaiian Pineapple Chicken


"I love the sweet and tangy pineapple sauce. I serve this over rice and accompany it with green beans. This recipe was handed down to me from my mother-in-law many years ago."

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; stir ketchup and brown sugar into melted butter, stirring to dissolve brown sugar. Whisk cornstarch into vinegar until smooth; pour into pan. Whisk constantly and add salt, soy sauce, and Worcestershire sauce to mixture; bring to a simmer. Cook until thickened, about 2 minutes. Stir pineapple into sauce.
  3. Arrange chicken pieces in a 9x13-inch baking dish; pour pineapple sauce over chicken.
  4. Bake until sauce is bubbling, chicken is browned, and the juices run clear, about 45 minutes. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a thigh should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).


  • Cook's Note:
  • I usually double the sauce, since my family really enjoys the sauce. I also use slightly less butter than what is called for, and it still comes out good.

I was just writing out a negative review while the sauce was cooling, there I found my mistake. Before I let it simmer and then cool, I tasted this sauce and found it to be revolting, the vineg...
