Aloha Chicken

Aloha Chicken


"The recipe lists chicken thighs, but you can use any bone-in chicken pieces you like. You have got to taste this dish to believe it! It's my personal favorite, and I don't even like chicken! I know it doesn't sound too great, but you owe it to yourself to taste this tangy-sweet pineapple-chicken dish. Serve over cooked white rice if desired. (Note: You can vary the amount of chicken to taste. The less you use, the stronger the flavor)."

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Arrange chicken pieces in a single layer in a well greased 9x13 inch baking dish. In a small bowl mix together the ginger, paprika, onion powder and garlic salt. Add the vinegar and mix well. Divide this mixture. Brush 1/2 over the chicken pieces and bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  3. Turn the chicken pieces, baste with the remaining 1/2 of the vinegar mixture and bake for 15 minutes longer. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl combine the ketchup, soy sauce, pineapple and brown sugar. When chicken baking time is up, spoon the pineapple/soy mixture over the chicken. Bake for another 30 minutes. Serve while still hot.

I would certainly prepare this again, but only with a few modifications. First, it was way too salty. I will begin by at cutting the garlic salt back by at least half. Also, the ketchup flavo...

My tropical themed event went very well and my guests loved this dish! I do, too! I used Ginger Juice, less onion powder as I spread onions and colorful sweet peppers on the bottom of my coconut...

Fabulous! I used boneless, skinless chicken breast and reduced the cooking time to 30 minutes total. I also used a lot less brown sugar, as the pineapple makes this dish plenty sweet already.

Good. Easy to make. I reviewed other comments before making it. Here are my suggestions. Full portion of ketchup is probably too much, but 1/2 is not enough (bottom line - to taste). I used bo...

I used chicken breasts instead of bone-in chicken and baked it on a bed of veggies as someone suggested earlier. Then I served it over white rice. Everyone loved the mixture of tastes! The meat ...

Great tasting and very easy to make. The chicken almost melts in your mouth, and the rich mixture of the ginger & soy combined with the sweetness of the pineapple five it a wonderful flavor.

This was excellent. The only changes I made were: I only used three quarters cup of ketchup and because I found the sauce to be a little runny, I added 2 tbsp of cornstarch and water during the ...

I loved it. It reminded me and a few others of L&L. great stuff.

I added some chili sauce, it gave it some pep.
