Hawaiian Chicken

When I baptized my second daughter 27 years ago, her Godmother made this dish for the party.

At the time, Dottie breaded and fried chicken pieces, made the sauce and baked it. Everyone loved the chicken.

Photos and recipe are my own.

Today, being more health conscious, I saute plain chicken pieces in a skillet, before adding to the sauce and baking.

The choice is yours, as both ways of cooking the chicken are delicious.
