Hawaiian Chicken

I have to share this recipe for Hawaiian chicken. I adapted it from a Taste of Home recipe and tweaked a few things to work with what I had on hand at the time. My sister and I made this together for Jimmy and her boyfriend and we all loved it.

I think the sauce is what makes it. Pineapple, onions, honey, ketchup, and cider vinegar are thickened and coat the chicken perfectly. This dish is especially delicious when served over rice!
