Fried Chicken Hawaiian-Style

"The original recipe calls for chicken drumettes but I use skinless, and boneless thighs or breast tenders. Good to take on picnics and eaten with rice balls (musubi) since it's good cold as well as hot."

  1. This recipe isn't too bad, but I was hoping for more flavor. I marinated it for 7 hours. I also think it could use a little sake or mirin.
  2. This turned out really well! I've been making a similar sesame chicken recipe for years which I got out of honpa hongwanji favorite recipe books. I have to say your recipe is just as "Ono"! However, I omitted the salt and accent because of my no salt restrictions and it didn't affect the taste at all. Grandkids loved it!
  3. Great chicken! Made this using chicken thighs and marinating approximately eight hours. Followed your advice and used just a sprinkle of salt - did not use the optional Accent seasoning (a personal choice on my part.) Went with the two cloves of garlic - the sesame seed give this wow appeal! Yes loved this chicken - so happy with this recipe I am now off to print more of your recipes! Thank you - it's been added to my Favorites Cookbook - a repeat has already been requested.
  4. I made this recipe for the PAC 08' and all I can say is this is a must was Delish!!!


I love to travel therefore, I have learned to eat all kinds of ethnic foods. I try to duplicate recipes of foods that I've particularly enjoyed during my travels. I cook alot of oriental dishes since this is what my husband prefers and enjoys. However, my grandchildren prefer spagetti, pizza, hamburgers and hot dogs over my gourmet cooking. My biggest critic is my husband. <img src="">
