Sheet Pan Hawaiian Chicken
Sheet Pan Hawaiian Chicken is a delicious sweet and spicy one-pan meal. To make this simple sheet pan chicken just prep your ingredients and pop the pan in the oven.
I am constantly in search of easy weeknight dinners. Sheet pan meals are the easiest of them all. I just chop up my ingredients, toss them in seasoning or a sauce and bake!
This Sheet Pan Hawaiian Chicken recipe is flavorful without being overly complicated. Start with some fresh or canned pineapple, bell peppers, and chicken thighs. Then, mix together the sweet and spicy sauce. Finally, toss it all together and pop it into the oven to bake.
After the sheet pan pineapple chicken bakes, I like to garnish it with some cilantro and serve it with rice.

Can I Use Canned Pineapple Instead of Fresh?
For best results, stick with fresh pineapple. Canned pineapple has a lot more juice and isn’t the same texture.
Is There a Pineapple Juice Concentrate Substitute I Can Use?
If your grocery store doesn’t sell pineapple juice concentrate or you simply can’t locate it, I recommend using apple juice concentrate instead.
