The Tardy Hostess's Variation on Mirj's Boozy Maple Chicken

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Sarah Chana

With less than two hours to go before the beginning of our big holiday meal, I still had to make chicken for 16 people, and a whole bunch of other dishes. Desperate for a new idea, I came to 'Zaar, hoping it would (once again) save the day. Hooray for Mirj! I took her Boozy Maple Chicken recipe and "followed" it in my way, i.e. by substituting half the ingredients but more or less following it perfectly. Anyhow, here is what I came up with. Hope you like it. I have given the quantities for 6 ppl, but I really made it for many more.

I cooked it at 400 like the original recipe and then had to broil it to brown it. Next time I may try the convection roast feature on my oven perhaps that will help. It did turn out moist and I liked the additon of the onions to the original recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse the chicken and drop it, unceremoniously, in a roasting pan.
  2. Mix together the wet stuff. Pour it on the chicken.
  3. Top with the onion.
  4. Bake. covered, at 350F for about 30 minutes, uncovering for the last 5-10 minutes so that it gets brown.
