Sticky Chicken

Sticky Chicken

prep: approx. 15-20 minutes cooking time: 55 minutes

2-3 chicken breasts
1/2 cup butter
1 1/3 cups ketchup
1 to 1 1/2 cups brown sugar (I use probably 1 1/4 cups, but some like it less sweet, or more...)
1 T minced dry onion
2 teaspoons liquid smoke
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons reg. yellow mustard
2 teaspoons lemon juice (you can also use vinegar in a pinch)

1. Bring to a boil in a small saucepan and whisk until mixed together all the ingredients besides the chicken.
2. Brown 3-4 chicken breasts in a skillet (I cut them in half lengthwise to make smaller, juicier pieces).
3. Lay browned chicken in baking dish (I use a smaller deep dish that barely fits the chicken in one layer on the bottom). Cover with 2/3 of the sauce, keeping the rest warm on a low burner (stir here and there).
4. Bake uncovered 40 minutes at 350.
5. Pour on the rest of the sauce and bake 15 minutes more.

This chicken is delicious served over rice, with biscuits and a vegetable for sides. If you decide to serve it with rice, begin cooking the rice about 30 minutes after you put the chicken in the oven.

thanks for sharing your recipes! I'm sure I'll be checking in often. Becca makes something like your Sweet Chicken. We call it "Sugar Meat." :)
