The recipe for Easy Hawaiian Chicken is a delicious sweet and savory chicken that the whole family will love. This is an easy dinner and perfect for entertaining too.
This meal was inspired by my craving for L&L Hawaiian bbq, a local hole in the wall Hawaiin food joint! Oh man… it is truly delicious, and probably full of ingredients you don’t want to find yourself eating every day! My favorite plate is the Hawaiin chicken plate served with Healthier Hawaiian Macaroni Salad salad and rice.
Because of all the restaurant closures due to the Covid-19 we are forced to recreate some of our favorite takeout meals. Introducing a healthy version of my favorite Hawaiian take out, Easy Hawaiian Chicken!!
