my brother in law's chicken

My brother in law makes the most delicious Hawaiian-ish style chicken. I asked my sister if I could share the recipe & she said- go for it! Tonight, I made it & Hailey told me it was one of her all time favorites--
so there you go!
You've gotta make it for sure now.

3 lbs. boneless skinless chicken thighs
- I just used as many pieces as I could fit in a 9x13" pan- the chicken shrinks down so stuff it
(equal parts - sugar, pineapple juice & soy sauce)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup pineapple juice
3/4 cup soy sauce

Mix the sauce ingredients together & pour over chicken. Cover & bake for one hour at 350 degrees. Uncover, turn chicken pieces over then bake for 30 minutes more. Serve with rice-

This is the most tender juicy chicken!

You are gonna love it
