Hawaiian Chicken Recipe

sweet, saucy, chicken

Have you noticed that most of my recipes are chicken? Well, I have a good explanation for this, when I was a kid, I had food allergies and chicken is one of the many forbidden food. Kids love fried chicken, so you can imagine the torture (hahaha…) I have gone through while I watched my siblings eating their fried chicken while I am having fruits and Pork floss (dried meat with a light and fluffy texture similar to coarse cotton) for lunch and dinner. When finally, my food allergies are over, I was already working. Every time we dine out at Pancake House, Jollibee and KFC, I would always order a 2pc. Chicken and rice, and my officemates we’re constantly wondering why I had this craving for chicken. So now you know why.

My featured recipe for today is Hawaiian Chicken and the reason I named it that way is because most of the ingredients in this recipe are excess from the Hawaiian Pizza I made a few days ago. Keep in mind that in all of my recipes, I'm cooking just for two, me and my husband, so If you're planning on using this recipe, just double the ingredients if you're cooking for a large number of people (sometimes it depends on how big their appetite are).
