What our family likes to Eat

Hawaiian Chicken

We like ours with rice, gravy and peas.

eatThe recipe

Hawaiian Chicken


4-6 skinless boneless chicken breasts

1 cup soy sauce

1 cup raw sugar

1 cup ketchup

2 Tbsp minced garlic


Mix soy sauce, sugar, ketchup and garlic in a container large enough to marinate the chicken breasts.  Lay the chicken in the marinade and put in refrigerator overnight (2 nights are better).  Turn over every 12 hours.  When ready to cook, place chicken breasts on a baking sheet and bake in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes. 

*Cold leftover chicken is wonderful the next day sliced thin and placed on top of a crisp green salad.
