Three-Ingredient Sticky Baked Chicken

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Linda Sue

From the Canadian Family Website: Sticky, sweet with a little savory soy sauce, this chicken is pure yummy. Destined to become a family favorite because kids love it and parents love the simplicity of this oven-to-table meal. I had a great result making this with bone in chicken leg thigh quarters. I had one piece that was skinless, and we discovered that using skinless does allow the flavor of the glaze to permeate the chicken better. This was a hit with my whole family - including my hard to please 3 year old. I used ketchup, reduced sodium soy, and lite maple syrup. Ingredients I happened to have on hand. This could NOT be easier. Adjust cooking times as needed for bone in cuts. Great with white rice and steamed broccoli. This recipe is so simple that you will probably have this assembled before your oven is preheated.

This was very nice but not spectacular. I used half chili sauce and half ketchup but even then the chili flavour was too hot. Will try again with more ketchup.
