Hawaiian Baked Chicken
Our family has a love/hate relationship with chicken thighs. We all love them and Uncle Bee hates them. hehe. So I very very rarely make them. If and when I do it is usually when he is travelling or has other dinner plans or I have him a frozen dinner or something as back up. This recipe caught my eye in an old taste of home cookbook and I knew I had to give it a try…you know… for the blog 😉
We absolutely loved it! We served it over some Vigo Yellow Saffron Rice with the pan sauce and oh my gosh it was good. Dare I say even Uncle Bee liked it and I didn’t even have to make him his back up Hot Pocket? LOL!
The Sweet and Tangy flavors of the pineapple & spicy brown mustard are a match made in heaven! I want to try to make wings and drumsticks this way soon! Yum!
- 3 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 2 Tablespoons melted butter
- 2 (8 oz) cans crushed pineapple, undrained
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
- 1/4 cup spicy brown mustard
- 1/4 cup honey
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Season chicken with salt & pepper to taste and arrange chicken in a shallow baking dish coated with cooking spray.
In a small bowl combine the melted butter, chicken broth, mustard, honey, garlic powder and pineapple.
Spoon over chicken and sprinkle with paprika. Bake for 45 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 180 degrees.
As a side note, I made these Grandma Jane’s Peanut Butter Cookies from my buddy Michaela’s blog last night and they were out of this world good. We all agreed they were the best Peanut Butter Cookies we have ever tasted. Y’all have to try them soon! Seriously!
2nd side note>>> Our new Kroger opened last week in Madison, AL and it is the nicest grocery store I have been to! I liked it even better than whole foods and of course the prices are better. Kudos to Kroger for such an amazing job! It’s less than 2 miles from our house to so I obviously plan on stopping by every day/living there part time 😉 Am I the only one that gets crazy excited for new grocery stores? Probably 😉
