A few years ago, when I traveled to Oahu, I had the most amazing, sticky, sweet and tangy Hawaiian baked chicken at a local restaurant. The chicken was baked to golden brown color, with a distinctly tropical flavor of pineapple, soy sauce and honey.
I was instantly in love. I licked my fingers eating the chicken while looking out to the shimmering blue sea.

While I couldn’t go back to Hawaii as I wished, this time of year is a great time to re-create some of my favorite foods, inspired by my past travels. This past weekend, while having a few close friends over, I decided to make these Hawaiian baked chicken.
For the marinade, I used KC Masterpiece® BBQ Sauce Mix and Dry Rubs, Sweet Honey flavor. I went to my local Walmart store and picked up KC Masterpiece®, some chicken drumsticks and bottled pineapple juice.
I am so happy that Walmart is a short 5 minutes drive from my home. It’s well-stocked with everything and makes Spring/Summer entertaining such a breeze.
The Hawaiian baked chicken turned out to be a HUGE hit. Both my friends and the kids finished them up in no time. They were absolutely juicy, moist, sweet, savory, with a mild tang from the pineapple juice.
No one believed that it took me practically 5 minutes active time and only 3 ingredients to prepare the chicken. Load on up KC Masterpiece® BBQ Sauce Mix and Dry Rubs in the different flavors (Original, Spicy Habanero and Sweet Honey) the next time you shop at Walmart.
They can be found at the condiments aisle near the other KC Masterpiece® BBQ Sauce. KC Masterpiece make it easy to customize your meal to taste just how you like it.
Customize it with water, juice, soda, beer or bourbon or just use it as a dry rub. Enjoy!
