I LOVE Hawaiian pizza — forget you, Hawaiian pizza haters — so I came up with the fabulous idea of making this dish. It came to me yesterday morning when I was staring in the refrigerator, wondering what to do with the rest of the pineapples from the Pineapple Pork recipe earlier in the week. I love all things Hawaiian, so I decided to bake some chicken breasts, slather on some BBQ and layer on some pineapple rings. The results were super tasty.
I started off by preheating the oven to 375 degrees and lining a pan with aluminum foil. I put the chicken breasts in the pan and seasoned them with Pappy’s. Then I put them in the oven, and added BBQ sauce and sriracha to the top of the chicken breasts after about fifteen minutes, after another fifteen, I added pineapple rings to the chicken then slathered on some more BBQ, sriracha and added a bit of honey to each, stirring the sauces together with a basting brush.
I then cranked the oven up to 400 degrees and put the chicken back in the oven for another 20-25 minutes. I just waited until the chicken were sizzling in the oven, and took them out once they were sizzling for awhile. I served the breasts on white rich, garnished with parsley and leftover pineapple, then poured a little leftover pineapple juice on the chicken breasts to serve.
Fire Hawaiian BBQ Chicken
2-4 chicken breasts
Pappy’s seasoning (paprika, cayenne pepper and garlic salt would work well as a substitute)
3-5 pineapple rings
1/2 c pineapple juice
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line baking pan with aluminum foil. Combine equal parts sriracha and BBQ sauce in a small bowl for basting the chicken later.
- Add in chicken breasts and season to taste.
- Heat in oven for 15 minutes. Take out chicken breasts and add baste with BBQ and sriracha sauce.
- Put back in oven for another 15 minutes. Take out and add pineapple rings and more of the sauce mixture. Put heat up to 400 degrees, then put back in the oven for another 20-25 — or until you hear some sizzling in the oven!
