A quick chicken recipe, serve with plain white rice and steamed baby carrots.
- 2 1⁄2-3 lbs cut-up chicken
- 1⁄2 cup ketchup

- 1 (2 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
- Arrange chicken parts in a casserole dish.
- In a small bowl combine the ketchup, water, sugar and soup mix.
- Mix together well.
- Spoon over chicken, making sure the sauce is on every piece.
- Bake covered at 350F for one hour.
I was pretty skeptical about the soup mix and reduced it down to somewhere between 1/2 and 3/4, I just eyeballed it. I knew as soon as I dumped it I should have run my rolling pin across it a couple of times because I don't like all those little chunky onions. Aside from that, I was super surprised to find that I liked it so much and DH enjoyed it very much as well. It was sweet, tangy, sticky and very flavorful. I did reduce the cooking time though. I always cook my thighs at 350 for 30 minutes then turn the oven off and let them rest in there for another 15-20. They come out perfect every single time. This is a keeper and a new favorite Go-To when I need something, well, in a hurry. :) Thanks for posting!
We enjoyed this very much and I will definitely make this again. Very easy dish to put together. I used 1 Pk. soup mix and doubled everything else. We like a lot of sauce. I served this with rice and a salad. Thanks for the yummy recipe Graybert. Rita
I used to make this often when my daughter was wee. The other day, the husband asked if would make it and Id forgotten the recipe, so thank you for providing. I have mixed this up before, using chili sauce instead of ketchup, a few good dashes of cayenne, splash of Worchestershire for a bit of depth of flavor and voila, a little twist on an old classic! Its great the way it is, but a very versatile recipe, so dare to play! Thanx again, from Canada!
