Hawaiian Chicken


An oldie but goodie! Mouth watering, every time, without fail.

I have had this recipe since my college years, and since that time, it has sparked up so much conversation, along with many smiles and happy tummies. I have shared this recipe time and time again with close friends, and all have absolutely raved about it. I call it my oldie but goodie. It’s absolutely a recipe that I will continue to pass on. Try this for your next theme party, or just for dinner one night.


2 tbsp honey

1/3 cup Heinz 57 sauce

1 can of pineapple slices or chunks

2 tbsp pineapple juice

chicken- whatever you prefer- thighs, wings, drumsticks

lawry’s seasoning


mix heinz 57, honey, and pineapple juice


Season chicken with lawry’s seasoning and salt on both sides evenly

start baking ~total time=one hour.  Use a 13×9 baking pan & spray with non stick cooking spray (pam)

place chicken on the baking pan

(for 1st 30 mins)>>Bake seasoned chicken at 375 degrees.

mix the honey, pineapple juice, and honey together

(for last half hour) Brush on sauce put back in oven, wait ten minutes, brush on more sauce…repeat this until the sauce is all gone.

At 1 hour, put pineapple slices or chunks on top. Put chicken back in oven.

Wait an extra 2-3 minutes (so pineapple slices get warm 🙂

Take chicken out, & serve with Hawaiian rolls & your fave salad. *Tip-try pairing it with Mandarin-amazing.

    is this easys to make in a large quantity? i’m feeding about eight adults and 10 kids….

      Eight adults and ten kids would call for about 4 large packages of big drumsticks the contain maybe 12 drumsticks each? That would fill 4 non-stick pans, so if you have double ovens, then it will be okay because you could put 2 trays in each oven! 🙂

      Really good chicken ! I made this for mlesyf and my 3 year old grand nephew, he loved them! He would have polished off all 8 drumsticks had I let him, but I wanted some too! I used allspice and curry powder, instead of ginger and turmeric. Served with rice, sweet potatoes and green beans. The onion sauce was very yummy! Looking forward to making more of your recipes.

    Looks mouth watering. Can’t wait to try it. Does the Heinz 57 give it a tangy flavor?
