This fragrant chicken has a decidedly Hawaiian flavor, with its blend of pineapple, ginger and soy coating each morsel.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 4 pounds chicken thighs
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- 2 tablespoons garlic salt
- 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple with juice
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Arrange chicken pieces in a single layer in a well greased 9x13 inch baking dish. In a small bowl mix together the ginger, paprika, onion powder and garlic salt. Add the vinegar and mix well. Divide this mixture. Brush 1/2 over the chicken pieces and bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
Turn the chicken pieces, baste with the remaining 1/2 of the vinegar mixture and bake for 15 minutes longer. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl combine the ketchup, soy sauce, pineapple and brown sugar. When chicken baking time is up, spoon the pineapple/soy mixture over the chicken. Bake for another 30 minutes. Serve while still hot.
