This chicken recipe has been with my family for over 40 years and as recently as 15 year ago has been on the New Year's menu every year. My son loves this chicken recipe so much that he tries to hide them in the refrigerator. He's a little bothered that I am sharing this recipe with everyone that is willing to try it. Let me know how you like it or if you need to ask me a question. :-) Aloha!

  1. Combine all ingredients together (except the flour) in a large container and mix well, make sure that the sugars are well incorporated.
  2. Add the chicken to the sauce and marinate 4 to 6 hours in the refrigerator.
  3. Drain the chicken piece a few at a time and dredge lightly in the flour. Drop chicken pieces separately in hot oil and fry them till they are golden brown, do not over fry as the chicken pieces are small they cook up pretty fast
