This recipe is fantastic. A roomate of mine in college used to make this for our house of five poor college students. Twenty-three years later, I am still making it for my family with parsley potatoes and garlic green beans. I use 6 skinned whole chicken legs. This also can be cooked in a crockpot. Give this recipe a try.

Good stuff! This was Easter dinner this year, and Mom agrees with the 5 stars. Very easy to mix up, and the just pop in the oven and forget it. Great blend of flavors. I used chicken leg quarters.

We had this last night, I used 4 chicken thighs and made half the sauce. We LOVED this recipe, it will be repeated many times at our house. Recipe Fairy, thank you so much. Mary
