Pineapple Hawaiian Chicken

Here's another recipe, compliments of my niece Jen.  From Jen, "We did this and served it over rice and it was SO good! And I think you could make it ahead of time and just let it marinade! It was delicious!! It is so good and moist. It was amazing!!"  Once again Jen, thanks for sharing!

7-8 Various pieces of Chicken, we used Breasts, cut in half
2 T. Sugar
1 tsp Cornstarch
1 (8 oz) can crushed pineapple
2 T. butter
2 T. soy sauce
1 T. finely chopped onion

In a small saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch. Stir in crushed pineapple, butter, soy sauce, and chopped onion. (Since I forgot an onion, I used onion salt, and it was still good!) Cook and stir until thickened, and bubbly; cook 1 minute more.

Put chicken in a casserole dish sprayed with Pam. Cover with Pineapple mixture and bake at 350 for 45 minutes to an hour, until chicken is done!
