I liked this dish a lot. It's very easy and tasty. I actually did something a little different that turned out REALLY well: I used a glass ungreased 9 X13 baking pan and I added 2 cups of raw rice, and 2-and-a-half cups of water to the bottom of the pan. I stirred the rice to make sure it soaked the water in well, then I put the chicken on top of the rice/water mix, and poured the sauce over that. I baked it covered with tin foil for 20 minutes @ 400F, then I removed the tin foil and baked for 30 or so minutes uncovered. The rice cooks thoroughly and easily on its own, absorbing the flavorful sauce, and the chicken is very moist and tender with a coating of the sweet and sour. I think next time I might add a little pineapple before I pour on the sauce because I love pineapple.

It was good, but too sweet for me. I used bone in thighs chicken. I cut the butter in half, as 1/4 cup seemed like it would be excessive. threw in some green pepper with 10 minutes to go. had some pineapple on the side. Went well with white rice. I don't know if I will make this again, but if I do I will cut the brown sugar in half.

VERY tasty! I added chunky pieces of green pepper, while arranging the dish for the oven. Next time I will add the green pepper 5 or 10 minutes before taking out of the oven. Upon taking the dish out, I placed the chicken breasts on bed of white rice on a serving dish, added some pineapple chunks, and covered it all with the leftover sauce. Definately will add this to my rotation. My husband loved it!

VERY YUMMY but man is it sweet!!!! We served it over white rice and the leftovers heated up beautifully! We also added a little shake of red pepper flake to combat the sweetness and add a little extra zing. Thank you!

Excellent, with in our opinion, a perfect meld of flavors. You can't really taste the white wine, however, the sauce has a distinctive flavor to it that is sooooo good. Served it with rice and a little soy sauce. Next time, will try adding cornstarch to thicken the sauce after cooking, and will add green peppers and pineapple. My husband and teenage son absolutely LOVED it, want me to make more ASAP!!!

My turn to prepare the office lunch and I choose Hawaiian Chicken II. Because the menu was enlarged, my prep/cook time was about 4 hours to prepare for forty-two people. To this day I am still getting rave reviews to the meal that was prepared last July ’01. Thanks for the recipe.

This was delicious! I cut up the chicken into chunks and added whole green beans and pineapple chunks. Will definitely make this again!
