Chicken Ono

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by LaLa Lola

I found this recipe over 30 years ago in a women's magazine. I believe the word "ono" is supposed to mean "tasty" in Hawaiian, but I've never confirmed that! I have also tried it with pepper jelly for a slightly spicier version. Goes well with fried rice.

Should call this chicken o-yes!! I used drumsticks and the only thing I would have done differently was take the skin off because I had to use a gravy separator as it was kind of greasy.
