Terriyaki Baked Chicken

Okay, here's the deal with this recipe, I really liked it the first nite we had it, I followed the recipe, and it DID NOT look like this picture. I thought however that it would be fabulous done as kabobs... they were only like 2.5 stars out of 4; maybe someone could help me on this: the second time I made these, nothing was different except the method of cooking, they turned out WAY too salty, all the sauce was rediculously too salty, so it wasn't really a hit. But they looked beautiful! Although the bake method was nice to have it ready ahead of time, and a lot fewer dishes.


1 (3 lb.) fryer, cut up
1 c. soy sauce
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 tsp. ginger
1 clove garlic, crushed
Butter, melted
1 can chunk pineapple (1 1/2 cups)
1 med. onion, sliced
1 sm. green pepper, sliced


Combine soy sauce, sugar, ginger and garlic in large bowl. Stir until sugar dissolves. Add chicken and marinate 3 to 4 hours. Remove chicken and season with pepper. Brush with melted butter. Place in shallow baking pan and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees (covered). Remove from oven and turn chicken. Add pineapple (with the juice), green pepper and onion slices. Continue baking for 30 to 40 minutes until chicken is done. Cover until the last 15 minutes, then uncover for browning. Serve with rice and pour juice over all. I used the left over juice and reduced it in a sauce pan, then added a teeny bit of cornstarch to make a sauce, it was pretty good!

Instead of white rice, I actually served this the first time with this Lime Rice recipe, and then second time with this Coconut Rice recipe (shown below).
