The timing couldn’t be any better to share this Hawaiian-inspired dish when we just booked our third trip to Maui! I am anxiously waiting to eat delicious Hawaiian food when we are there, but until then this amazing chicken fits the bill. It’s actually a lot like my Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken recipe I posted on my blog almost nine years ago. There’s just a few small differences that make a huge difference in the taste. I can’t say enough good things about this Baked Sweet Hawaiian Chicken!
Try it as soon as you can if you haven’t already. I promise, it’s going to become a new family favorite. 🙂

Baked Sweet Hawaiian Chicken
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup cornstarch
- 3 large eggs beaten
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup pineapple juice
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 1/2 Tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 red bell pepper chopped (seeds removed)
- 1 can (20 ounces) pineapple tidbits, drained
- Preheat oven to 325° F. Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
- Cut chicken breasts in bite-size pieces. Season with salt and pepper. Place cornstarch in a large bowl, and eggs in a separate medium bowl. Dip chicken pieces in cornstarch to coat, then coat in eggs.
- Heat vegetable oil in a large, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook coated chicken, in batches so you don’t over-crowd pan, until golden-brown on all sides. (You’re not cooking it all the way through. It will finish in the oven.) Place chicken in the prepared dish.
- In a medium bowl whisk together the sauce ingredients; pineapple juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic and cornstarch. Pour evenly over chicken. Sprinkle the tops of chicken with the chopped bell pepper and pineapple.
- Bake, uncovered, for 1 hour. (I stir the chicken every 15 minutes so it gets evenly coated in sauce.) Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
