Honalulu Chicken

The Menu:
Honalulu Chicken


The Original Recipe:
I found this reicpe while searching for something to do with Chicken theigh/leg quarters. This recipe was delicious!! My whole family (even the pickiest eater) loved it. I asked what to make for supper this week, and he mentioned wanting to have this again. It was a total hit! I didn't dredge in flour and fry it, though. I changed it up just a bit. My way follows this recipe.


HONOLULU CHICKEN

1/4 c. flour

1/2 tsp. salt

Dash of pepper

4 chicken breast halves, skinned

2 tbsp. vegetable oil

1 c. peach preserves

1/2 c. barbecue sauce

1/2 c. diced onion

2 tbsp. soy sauce

1 lg. green pepper, cut into strips

2 (8 oz.) cans sliced water chestnuts, optional

Hot cooked rice

Combine first 3 ingredients: Dredge chicken in flour mixture. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat; add chicken and cook 2-3 minutes on each side or until browned.

Combine preserves, barbecue sauce, onion and soy sauce; mix well. Pour mixture over chicken. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer 40 minutes. Stir in green pepper and chestnuts; continue to cook an additional 15 minutes. Serve over rice.



The Way I Made It My Own:
I changed a few things to make it how I thought it would taste good. I am glad I did. It was great! * To make it even more summery. I could see seasoning the chicken and then grilling it. Cooking the sauce on the stove and adding some cornstartch/water mix to it to thicken it and then glazing the chicken with it while it grills.
