Take-out Tuesday, Hassleback Hawaiian Chicken


Today’s recipe is literally easier than picking up take out




4 ingredients, boneless chicken thighs, pineapple, prosciutto and BBQ sauce





Make 4-5 deep cuts across the chicken thighs





Stuff thinly sliced prosciutto into the cuts

{I left 2 thighs whole for Super Boy and Big E, didn’t know if they’d go for the prosciutto}





Top generously with drained pineapple tidbits, or chop up fresh pineapple





Slather BBQ sauce overall, I used Sweet Baby Ray’s Hawaiian BBQ sauce





Bake at 375 degrees for about 50 minutes, basting with pan juices half way through





🍍 Super easy and delicious!  🍍

4-6 boneless chicken thighs

3-4 oz prosciutto

1 lg can crushed pineapple, partially drained, juice reserved

BBQ sauce

Slice thighs, cutting about 2/3 way down, creating 1/2” slices. Tuck a piece of prosciutto in between slices. Spray baking dish with cooking spray and put thighs close together but barely touching in dish.
Spoon pineapple over thighs and smother with BBQ sauce. Can be refrigerated at this time for baking later.

Bake at 375 for 50 minutes, basting with pan juices 1/2 way through baking time.  Use a meat or digital read thermometer to check internal temperature if desired, chicken should be 165 degrees F.  Do not over cook.
