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
- In a saucepan mix the jam, BBQ sauce, chopped onion & soya sauce together. Heat on medium low heat until blended.
- 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
- Pour the prepared sauce evenly all over the chicken pieces
- 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!
