Perfect Hawaiian Chicken
The first time I ever tried Hawaiian Chicken was at a catered party many, many years ago. It was love at first bite! Since then I was on a journey to find that same delicious meal in restaurants. I would order Hawaiian Chicken whenever I saw it on the menu...but most times I ended up disappointed. The meal was either too sour or too tangy or too sweet. I finally stopped wasting my money on bad Hawaiian Chicken.
Then one day I found an Hawaiian Pork recipe posted on a cooking website. It was posted by a home cook known as SDay5, whose numerous recipes I've tried and loved over the years! I had no doubt her recipe would be perfect! All I did was sub chicken for the pork and I added some red bell peppers. I was amazed at how quick and easy this was to make! It was done in less than an hour!
This recipe has just the right balance of tangy, sour and sweet! I served it with some cooked jasmine rice and it brought me back to that very first time I fell in love with Hawaiian Chicken! If you love really good Hawaiian Chicken or Pork, give this recipe a try!
