Sweet & Sticky Chicken

Another random chicken recipe I have found in my mom’s old recipe box.. titled Chicken, excellent & sticky! Funny! So I decided to call it Sweet & Sticky Chicken

Truth is that sometimes simple recipes are just delicious! Quick to prepare, just mix up some bought ingredients & bake! That is exactly what this Sweet & Sticky Chicken is !

The original recipe calls for Peach jam, I could only find Apricot jam so I am putting both options in the recipe.

I served this chicken with crispy roast potatoes but rice would be an excellent choice too … the pan juices would be excellent on rice!

Also, I used legs & thighs but use any type of chicken you prefer & cook accordingly. The amount of sauce in this recipe is for 8 pieces of chicken.

Here is the recipe

1 cup peach or apricot jam

1/2 cup BBQ sauce

1/2 cup chopped onion

2 Tbsp soya sauce

8 pieces of chicken

Method

  1. In a saucepan mix the jam, BBQ sauce, chopped onion & soya sauce together. Heat on medium low heat until blended.
  2. Place your chicken pieces in a single layer in a 9 x 13 baking dish. You want the chicken pieces to be fairly close together
  3. Pour the prepared sauce evenly all over the chicken pieces
  4. Bake uncovered in a 325f oven. Baste after the first hour. Bake until the chicken is cooked through completely. I like to bake my chicken until the sauce has thickened & the chicken is crispy & browned, ( you will see in the picture.) It took about 1 1/2 hours but the time will depend on what chicken pieces you use!

Enjoy!

Chicken Adobo

I lived in Yellowknife ,NWT for 6 years after Murray & I got married.  While I lived there I learned a lot about cooking and baking from my friends, I was a young bride and mother and needed help!

A friend of my MIL, who is from the Philippines,  gave me this recipe for Chicken Adobo which is the national dish of the Philippines. I called her up last night to ask if I could post this recipe and she said sure but not to post her name! I have been making this for years as well as the rest of my husband’s family. It takes a couple of hours to cook but the prep is super simple.

I will post the recipe as she gave it to me. Any questions just ask!

 Ingredients 

 1 regular size chicken (cut into serving pieces)

1/2 cup white vinegar

1/2 cup soy sauce *** she recommends using China Lily but I use whatever I have on hand

1 cup water

6 cloves of garlic, crushed

1 small onion, chopped

salt to taste (1/2 tsp)

black pepper

Method 

  1. Place chicken in a medium size pan, put in salt & pepper.
  2. Add the vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, onions & water. Mix  throughly.
  3. Cover the pot and cook over medium heat until it starts to boil. Do not uncover it until it starts to boil! Stir it once in a while to ensure even cooking.
  4. Simmer until chicken meat is tender and liquid has practically evaporated and meat is brown. If this starts to boil too hard, turn the heat down a bit.. you want a simmer hot enough to cook the chicken but not to boil all the liquid away.
  5. Serve hot with rice

 *** If the sauce tastes too vinegery add 1/2 tsp of sugar, stir , taste and continue to add a bit more sugar at a time as needed to your taste. The sauce should still taste of vinegar and not sweet but you don’t want it to have too strong a vinegar taste.

 NOTE: after coming to a boil it took approx 1 1/2 hours to be finished.
