Once again, this recipe looks like a useful one for a family vacation as it can be put together the night before and requires very little kitchen time for the cook. As a bonus, it is pretty low in calories and fat.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place chicken in 13x9” baking dish. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over chicken. (At this point, the dish can be placed in the refrigerator overnight.) Bake, uncovered, at 350, 1 ½ hours or till done, turning after 45 minutes and basting occasionally.

It's a winner- and everyone ate it. I actually cooked it on top of the stove in my big frying pan. Served over rice. It was a little sweet for me, but that's probably why the kids gobbled it up. I didn't put it seasoning salt-- I'm never quite sure what that is. Anyway, it was just fine without it. 5-21-11-- I also use about 2 pounds boneless,skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite size (1 inch) chunks. It cooks up and simmers while the rice cooks. Thanks again for a recipe my family really likes!

I made this for PAC Fall '08, and it was a great selection. It was very easy to put together, and it was so tasty. It appealed to everyone in my family, which is not always easy to do. I made it exactly as directed in the recipe instructions (didn't make a single adjustment). And it's definitely something I will made again. I returned to this recipe and realized I didn't give it any stars. I don't know how I missed that the first time! A recipe this good should be rated appropriately.

Just used chicken drumsticks and it turned out fine. Everyone at family dinner asked for the recipe. I cooked the chicken for 50 minutes.
