Aloha Chicken

Aloha Chicken


1 package boneless, skinless chicken thighs (This will feed four, 2 pkgs will feed 8 and you don’t need to change the ingredients –plenty of sauce)


1 onion, sliced

1 can dark cherries, undrained (not cherry pie filling)

½ cup brown sugar

1 cup sherry

1 jar (12 oz) chili sauce  (find with ketchup)

1 Tbsp orange zest

salt and pepper


Perheat broiler.

Lay chicken in a large casserole coated with cooking spray.

Salt and pepper generously.

Cover chicken with sliced onions and broil till chicken and onions begin to brown lightly, about 5 minutes.

Remove from oven and adjust oven temperature to 325 degrees.

Add remaining ingredients to a small saucepan and bring to a boil.

Remove from heat and cover chicken with the sauce.

Wrap casserole with foil and bake for 2 hours.

Serve with rice, potatoes, or pasta to soak up the delicious sauce.


* You can make this casserole up until it’s wrapped in foil, and let it rest in the fridge for up to 4 hours. Increase baking time by about 20 minutes.
