This ultra-simple, super-fast recipe for Polynesian Chicken is one of our busy week night go-to favorites! Five ingredients, 30 minutes, and so much flavor!
This recipe for Polynesian Chicken first appeared on Catz way back in July of 2010, just a couple of months after I started the blog in an effort to improve my grocery shopping game and the quality of our family meals! Since then, we’ve made the recipe over and over and over again. Its simplicity, combined with its speed and flavor, send us back to it again and again in busy weeks or when the pantry is getting bare. Also, it’s just plain yummy! Some of the notes below are funny – the “six year old” is now 13 and regularly cooking on her own, while the “picky” two year old will eat almost anything! And Jewel is no longer 15 – she’s soon to graduate from college!
At any rate, we’ve made a few little enhancements to the recipe, along with some notes about additional ideas to add even more flavor, and, of course, some updated photos. Enjoy!
You know when you’re invited to someone’s house for dinner and the meal is just so good that you have to have the recipe? This was such a meal for my family. Back in June, we were over at my in-law’s house because I was going to meet one of my husband’s cousins who he hasn’t seen since he was a wee little boy. June is a crazy time for my in-laws and us because our family from Southeast Africa comes into town and we spend pretty much every night there. I enjoy seeing my husband’s family and enjoying the perk of getting out of dinner…ha ha, mostly kidding – of course, we help out as much as we can! The food sure is tasty, though.
