Not your 'typical' tequila-chicken recipe. This recipe uses bone-in chicken pieces and is baked in the oven - no marinating! You will love the succulent, juicy taste of this chicken - and the ease of preparation. NOTE: Please use bone-in chicken pieces as you won't have the same delicious results with boneless, skinless chicken.

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Spray a shallow baking pan (with sides) large enough to accommodate the chicken in a single layer with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Place unseasoned chicken pieces, skin-side up, in baking pan; place pan in preheated oven for 25 minutes to crisp skin and melt fat.
  4. Remove from oven and pour off fat.
  5. Place onion slices under chicken pieces.
  6. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over chicken.
  7. Return to oven for 20 minutes or until chicken is tender and crisp, and liquid thickens.
