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

Total Time
Prep 5 mins

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.

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.

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.

I really liked the flavor combination of the whiskey and maple syrup, and this was defintely once of the easiest chicken dinners I've made. But, I couldn't get the chicken to brown at all, and would have like the onions better if they had been sauted and carmelized in a little of the whiskey sauce. This one would need some tweaking for my tastes.

I had no onions so I followed the link to Mirj's original recipe, once I knew it could be done with boneless chicken. We loved it! I made it again today, with a boneless half turley breast. I had time to let it marinate in the friedge for a few hours and my husband loved it even more than the first time. He wants it again soon. I did have to pour some of the liquid off, too much for the pan I was using. Thanks again Sarah Chana, if I hadn't found this in your recipes I might not have found it at all.
