A pineapple glaze that tastes truly Hawaiian flavors this chicken while it bakes by itself in the oven. Great with rice, a green vegetable, and a salad of crisp greens.

"I made this last weekend and am making it again tonight. This recipe will be come a regular in my household. I added a fresh mango and a bit of Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce to give it a little heat. The sauce is delicious! My husband is a vegetarian, so we also prepare his veggie chik patties with the sauce. I plan to try the sauce on slow baked baby back ribs as well."

It was just OK. I think I should have made rice with it instead of fried potatoes.

LOVE IT!!! chicken comes out so tender & full of amazing flavor! I substituted spicy brown mustard & cayenne pepper for a nice kick. Thanks for sharing!

Very good!! Chicken was tender. I added less sugar & mustard as reviews said but I think I'll make it exact next time. I think it would taste even better a little sweeter & with more mustard.

To clarify my review I baked the thighs 20 minutes then added glaze with another 30 minutes in the oven. My husband had three helpings. We did have white rice with green peppers and onions diced.

Please indicate if these are boneless or bone-in chicken breasts.

I loved it with white rice.

It was good, but I felt the mustard drowned out some of the other flavors. Next time I'll add a little less or maybe a different type and see what happens.
