3 (2 1/2 lbs each) broiling chickens halved
2 c (1 lb 4 oz each) pineapple chunks
1 c sherry
1 c soy sauce
1/2 c honey
6 tbsp lemon juice
4 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tsp grated orange rind
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 lb diagonally sliced carrots
Boiling water
4 tbsp cornstarch
2 Green peppers, seeded & sliced
1 c Maraschino cherries, drained
Cooked rice
2 tbsp chopped chives

Place chicken in large flat glass dish or bowl. Drain pineapples well, reserving all syrup. Combine syrup with sherry, soy sauce, honey, lemon juice, oil, orange rind and garlic powder. Pour over chicken, turning each piece until well coated. Cover. Refrigerate 3 to 4 hours to marinate. When ready to cook, remove from marinade and place cut side up on broiler pan, or cut side down on grill. Pour marinade into large saucepan. Broil chicken 5 inches from source of heat 15 minutes. Turn, broil about 10-15 minutes longer, or until done. Regulate heat as necessary to prevent over browning.

Meanwhile, cook carrots in boiling salted water until just tender. Drain. Blend cornstarch into reserved marinade and bring to boiling, stirring constantly. Cook 1 minute, until thick and clear. Reduce heat. Stir in carrots, green pepper, pineapple and cherries. Simmer 2-3 minutes, until heated through.

To serve, arrange chicken on bed of fluffy rice. Spoon some of the sweet-sour sauce over chicken. Sprinkle with chives. Pass remaining sauce separately
