We had chicken every Sunday for dinner when I was growing up. This was one of my favorites..loved how it smelled when I came in from playing. My kids loved it too!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Note: This recipe works best with pieces of chicken with bone. Boneless breasts tend to dry out and get overdone with this recipe.
  2. Cook chicken in the hot shortening in a large ovenproof skillet until a rich golden color.
  3. Mix all the sauce ingredients in a bowl and pour over chicken in skillet. Cover tightly and cook over low heat for 30 minutes.
  4. Remove lid and put pan in 350°F oven for 35 to 60 minutes (pieces with bone will take much longer to bake than boneless breasts). As the chicken bakes, baste it frequently with the sauce.
