To prepare your Hawaiian recipe:
1. Wash hands.
2. Place chicken in large pot.
3. Add remaining ingredients.
4. Cook over high heat.
5. As the liquid thickens, turn heat to low and continue cooking until chicken is tender and slightly brown (about 30 to 35 minutes), stirring occasionally.
6. Enjoy your Hawaiian recipe!
Hawaiian Recipe Variation: Add 2-3 medium potatoes, unpeeled and cut in 1" pieces. Watch liquid, you might need to add more water.
2-1/2 to 3 lb. meaty pork spareribs (or lamb breast)
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 c. chopped onion
1/4 c. thinly sliced celery
1/4 c. green pepper, cut in 1/2 inch squares
2 Tbsp. margarine or butter or pork fat
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
2-1/2 c. (one No. 2 can) pineapple chunks or tidbits
1/4 c. vinegar
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
Arrange spareribs (or lamb breast) meaty-side up, in shallow pan; salt and pepper lightly. Roast in fairly hot oven (400 degree) 30 minutes. Meanwhile, cook chopped onion, celery and green pepper in margarine or pork fat 5 minutes; sprinkle with cornstarch, then stir in 1 cup syrup drained from pineapple chunks, and cook, stirring until transparent. Add vinegar and soy sauce. Add pineapple chunks. Pour off fat from roasting pan; pour pineapple and liquid over meat.
Reduce heat to 350 degree, and cook about 45 minutes or until done, basting with liquid in pan.

We love Adobo chicken. It is really delicious. I serve mine with some homemade yellow rice. We didn’t get to try the spareribs yet but will soon. If you are from Hawaii we would love for you to share a recipe or two with us to try. This is the last state in our study of the Western States. We have now completed all 50 states. I hope you have enjoyed learning along with us. Thank you again for stopping by.
