A recipe from a church cookbook I inherited from my GreatAunt Alta. The cookbook is dated 1963 as is from the St John's Luthern Church in Summit, NJ. The recipe suggests a combination of both bone-in breasts & legs with thighs attached.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a deep 12" size skillet- you will need more or less as needed to brown chicken.
  2. Place chicken in the hot oil and brown on all sides, then remove to a paper towel lined plate to drain excess grease.
  3. You may need to do this in batches, depending upon pan size.
  4. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 325 F and have ready a roasting pan greased lightly with oil; place browned chicken pieces in pan.
  5. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over the chicken.
  6. Bake for 1 hour or until chicken is fully cooked and juices run clear with chicken is pierced, basting occasionally with the pan juices.
