Ingredients

2 cut-up whole chickens (2 1/2 pounds each)
Coarse salt and ground pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups pineapple juice
1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger
1 teaspoon minced pickled jalapenos
2 scallions, thinly sliced
Cooked white rice for serving (optional)


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.



Remove skin from thighs and drumsticks; reserve breasts for chicken salad



Season thighs, drumsticks, and wings with salt and pepper.



In a large nonstick skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high. Saute chicken in two batches until golden, 5 to 7 minutes per batch, transferring each batch to a rimmed baking sheet.



Bake until chicken is cooked through, about 25 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.



Wipe skillet clean; add pineapple juice, ginger, and jalapeno. Cook over medium heat until syrupy and reduced to 3/4 cup, about 7 minutes. Pour sauce over chicken. Add scallions; toss to coat. Serve with white rice, if desired.
