No More Dry Chicken Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Chuck in Killbuck

My neighbor Steve and his girl were experimenting with a baked chicken recipe and came up a little gem I think. It creates for a really moist chicken without using a brine but with almost the same results. Hope you enjoy it much as we did. If you eat legs and wings with your fingers...have some napkins handy. *s*

I was snooping around Zaar looking for a different way to fix chicken. Ran across your recipe, and gave it a try. WOW! Talk about easy and tasty, this dish is it. The meat is so tender and moist, and we really liked the flavor of the sauce. I did use fresh lemon juice, but added orange zest to it...gave the chicken a nice added zing! Thanks a bunch for sharing, Chuck. You posted a real winner. Laudee
