Hawaiian Baked Chicken
Use whole chickens that you cut into pieces or use breast only. If using breast only you may need to shorten cooking time by a few minutes.
In large heavy skillet, heat a small amount of oil and brown chicken on all sides. Drain and place in a 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan.
In a saucepan, melt the margarine and saute the onions until soft and translucent. Combine the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour this mixture over the chicken.
Bake in 350-degree oven for about 1 hour, basting occasionally. Cover loosely with foil if necessary while cooking the last 30 minutes. Serve this with any juices in pan.
