Hawaiian Honey Mustard Chicken

Hawaiian Honey Mustard Chicken - www.SweetDashofSass.com - Bringing the taste of Hawaii to the Mainland

Just from the title of this dish, I'm sure you can tell we are missing Hawaii (The Big Island).  This was one of the first dinner dishes I made since coming back home.  I used Honey Mustard that I purchased from Big Island Bees and  Macadamia Nuts from Hamakua Macadamia Nut Company.  Unfortunately, I didn't bring home pineapple direct from Hawaii, but used canned (packed in its own juice).  Not the same as Hawaii pineapple, but it was a good substitute. This dish was so easy to put together

Day 6 + Final Day: Big Island Style


Day 6 was our last full day on the Island.  I was very sad...time flew by way too fast.  With that said, we knew we needed to site-see some more of the island. This day we decided to head down towards Kona to tour a coffee farm and go check out a Beekeeping Museum and sample some honey!

Day 3: Big Island Style


Sunday. You know what that means? Football! Normally, we are used to watching football early in the morning at 10am because of the time change. But here, it comes on at 7am, as there is another 3 hr time change from Cali! Bob got up and supported his Browns! And they.....Lost! I was really hoping for a win! Breakfast? We ate in our room today. Leftover malasadas from our adventure yesterday! Plus, drink wise had my favorite juice - POG ( Passion Orange Guava). Of course, they didn't taste

Day 2: Big Island Style


Poor Bob, he definitely got too much sun yesterday and got sunburned. (He's definitely a "white" boy.) He woke up a few times in the middle of the night for me to put aloe lotion on for him. It definitely helped and reduced the redness greatly just after a few coats. So, when thinking about what we would do on our adventure today, I knew it should not involve a lot of sun. I figured today would be a great day to drive around and venture.

If you have never flown into Kona before, the planes do not pull up to a gate. They actually Land directly on the Tarmac and they pull a staircase up to the door of the plane. It was late in the evening when we arrived, so unfortunately we could not see a thing during our drive from the airport to the hotel. It was about a 25-30 min drive from the airport. We were both exhausted and ready to get checked in.
