This is a recipe that my mother made and I now make for my family, a 3 generation family favorite. I added the brown sugar and hot sauce. The whole recipe is estimated as I do not measure when I make this dish and depending on how much time I have I may turn up the oven for the first 20 minutes of baking. I add the water last so I can adjust the sauce to the desired consistency. I also usually double the recipe. My family likes to dip garlic bread in the sauce.
- 1 (1 ounce) envelope Lipton Onion Soup Mix
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1⁄4 cup vinegar
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon celery seed
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 1 teaspoon of cholula hot sauce (optional)
- 1 whole chicken, cutup
- Place the chicken in a slightly oiled,foil lined baking pan.
- Place in a 425°F preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes.
- While chicken is baking, in a saucepan add the first 7 ingredients. Mix and heat on medium until it is hot.
- Pour over the chicken and return the chicken to the oven and bake until chicken is done. You may want to turn the oven down to 350 to 375°F so it will not brown too quickly. The sauce will thicken and start to caramelize and should not be watery.
This was a definite hit at the club meeting I took it to. It has a little bit of a different taste with the onion soup, but a keeper! Everyone enjoyed it and I had requests for the recipe. Thanks.
