This recipe is from Johnston's Cranberry Marsh recipe site. This is VERY good and easy to make. My DH says to please not forget this one!

I made this over a week ago but forgot to write the review. I liked the flavor of the sauce. I used skin-on legs and thighs. With the skin, I don't think the butter in the bottom of the dish was needed. They were still frozen when I started so cooked them for longer than 30 minutes before adding the sauce. I didn't turn them again after adding sauce, which allowed it to carmelize on top. I liked the flavor but not sure the family liked it enough to put it into the general rotation. I would like to make it with skinless meat, in which case I might mix the sauce more into the drippings.
