I don’t know about you, but I will surely put Hawaii in my lists of places to visit. The magnificent islands of Hawaii and their food will always get me every time. Sadly, I can’t get there nearly as much as I want. But luckily for me, this unbreaded, cooked on top of the grill, simple Hawaiian chicken will in no time get your tastebuds going on a tropical vacation. It’s better than take-out, and it’s mouthwatering with both tangy and sweet notes.

When it’s kind of rainy, and we’re stuck in the colder, gloomy, winter months, I enjoy getting fresh and flavourful meals that carry some sunshine and brighten the table. Surely, this is one of those meals. Nobody would feel boring or sad when they get a taste of the meal. It is best to serve this with white rice or cauliflower rice. If you’re looking for a chicken recipe, then you should try this.


¼ cup butter
⅓ cup ketchup
¼ cup brown sugar
2 tsp cornstarch
¼ cup vinegar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp soy sauce
½ tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 (9 oz) can crushed pineapple
3 lbs assorted chicken pieces such as breasts, thighs, wings, and drumsticks


1. Preheat oven at about 325 ° F (165 ° C).

2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; stir in ketchup and brown sugar in the melted butter, stirring to dissolve brown sugar. Whisk the cornstarch in the vinegar until smooth; pour over the pan. Constantly whisk, then add salt, soy sauce, and Worcestershire sauce in the mixture; bring to a simmer. Cook for about 2 minutes, until thickened. Add pineapple to the sauce.

3. Arrange pieces of chicken in a 9×13-inch baking dish; pour over the pineapple sauce over chicken.

4. Bake for about 45 minutes until sauce bubbles, chicken is browned, and the juices run clear. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into a thigh’s thickest portion must read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).


As my family enjoys the sauce, I usually double the sauce. I also use somewhat less butter than is required, and it still works out well.
