Sweet and Spicy Tomato Dump Chicken - OAMC

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by DriveThruDodger

This is a variation of the fabulous Sweet Salsa Dump Chicken - OAMC. My boys like their food a bit on the tame side. Makes 4 bags. Tip: I remove the skin from all the chicken at once. I wear disposable plastic gloves and grab the skin with a paper towel. It is much easier to pull off and the gloves keep your hands from freezing.

Hubby and I did not enjoy this at all. I marinated the chicken all day in the sauce and the chicken was tasteless. I also browned the chicken first so it would look more appetizing. Will not make this again.
