Hawaiian Chicken

A few weeks ago, we had a murder mystery dinner party at our house. The theme was "Lethal Luau" and eight of us arrived in character to solve the mystery of who poisoned Chase Diamond. While I won't give the murderer away, I will tell you it was an incredibly fun evening full of accusations and suspense. Check out below the recipe for a few pictures of everyone in action!

We needed a meal to fit the theme and this Hawaiian chicken ended up being perfect. I originally didn't even plan on blogging the chicken, as I didn't think it'd be anything special and I was more preoccupied with solving the mystery than taking pictures of the sandwiches. However, after sampling the chicken I knew it was too good not to share with all of you. The chicken was tender, light, and sweet, providing just the sustenence we needed to buckle down and determine Chase Diamond's killer!
