Chicken Ono

Chicken Ono created by Parsley

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.

    This was really good. I don't think it needs the amount of butter... and I would definitely take the skin off of the chicken.... double the sauce. Maybe just the apple jelly and mustard? Not sure.. but I'm going to make it again. It was really delicious. Here is a recipe that was posted in 2004 and I'm just now the 5th reviewer. Try this... it's really good. I served it with rice and veggies.

    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.

    Super good and super easy! I used the apple jelly. I used cut up boneless skinless chicken breasts and doubled the sauce. I served the chicken pieces over rice. The flavors go very well together. I'll be making this again. Thanx for sharing!

    Very tasty! I ended up marinating the chicken in the sauce (my husband just had to have pizza when I was about to pop the chix in the oven). The chicken was tender and extra yummy!
