Recipe by Laudee

This recipe was given to me many years ago by a family friend. I have no idea where she got it.It's very simple to fix; not much fuss. The ingredients for the sauce gave me cause for pause when I first read them, but this is a delicious tasting dish. You're in for a plesant surprise.

This was a real winner in my house!! I used 7 skinless chicken legs quarters and there were no leftovers!! (Our exchange student polished off 3 in one sitiing!!) I was curious about the ingredients in the sauce, but they blended together nicely to make a very tasty sauce. I actually made these in the oven in a covered casserole dish with great results. I think that this would work very well in a crock pot too! Thanks for sharing this recipe! I am glad I picked you as "my chef"!
