Waikiki Chicken

This is a yummy baked chicken recipe that is tangy and sweet. I love the combination on pineapple and chicken and so does my husband. He gobbled this right up! It does make you feel like you are in Hawaii at a Luau when you are eating it. I wish it was as easy to get to Hawaii as it was to make this meal! Enjoy some paradise on me. :)

Waikiki Chicken
8 Chicken breasts (or chicken pieces)
1 tsp. salt
1/2 c. flour
1/3 c. oil ( I didn't use the oil.... just sprayed the pan)
1/4 tsp. pepper

Coat chicken with flour and brown in oil (or in sprayed pan). Put in a shallow pan (if your chicken has skin, place skin side up). Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Make sauce.

1 (20oz) can sliced pineapple (I just used cubed)
1 c. sugar
2 TB. cornstarch
1/4 c. apple cider vinegar
1 TB. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. ginger
1 chicken bouillon cube
1 green pepper, cut into 1/4 inch circles

Drain pineapple, pour juice into 2 cup measure and add water to make 1 3/4 c. In sauce pan, combine juice with other ingredients. Bring to boil, stirring constantly. Boil 2 minutes and pour over chicken. Bake for 30 min at 350. Add pineapple and green pepper . Bake 30 minutes more. Serve with rice.
