There is a little ma and pop grocery store in Pukalani, Maui, HI that sells food that is cooked in their kitchen and one that we always liked was called what else but "Chili Chicken". When we left the islands after living there for almost 40yrs. (Maui is my husband's island home. ) and moving to WA several years ago we were hungry for some of that chili chicken so I made my own recipe which is very simple. hope you like it.
