Kosher/Meat - Gluten Free - No HFCS - Fast Recipe for busy Moms - use organic ingredients, this is my daughter's favorite dish and always a big hit.
- 4 chicken legs, whole fresh Glatt Kosher optional (this also works great with using a whole chicken - 8 piece cut up but double the BBQ sauce amounts)
- 1 cup ketchup, organic
- 1 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring
- 1⁄4 cup dark molasses
- 1⁄4 cup water, warm
- 1 teaspoon hot sauce (optional)
- Wash chicken thoroughly and place in a large microwavable casserole dish.
- Place molasses and warm water into a 2c microwave safe measuring cup or bowl and microwave for 30 seconds to allow molasses to mix easily.
- Add ketchup and smoke flavor and mix thoroughly. If you like a kick add hot sauce.
- Pour BBQ sauce mix over chicken evenly.
- Place chicken with cover into microwave oven and set on high for 15 minutes.
- Open casserole and re-arrange chicken, nuke for another 15-20 minutes making sure chicken is cooked to the bone upon removal - times may vary depending on wattage of oven.
- Remove casserole dish, uncover and broil in oven for 5 minutes to brown skin. Watch carefully not to overcook.
- Suggest serving with parve baked potato/sour cream recipe.
