In the picture there are around buns? Or are they round potatoes? I am curious and would like to see the recipe for them. This recipe is also great on carrots! I didn’t want to get rid of the extra sauce because I had made too much. So in a separate pot I put it in with some carrot dollars. Everyone loved it!
My mother made this as the first recipe that she prepared for my father after they got married, and I continued the tradition with my husband! I ususally bake this in the oven, and finish it off by turning on the broiler for a few minutes. This caramelizes the sauce and gives the chicken a nice crunchy exterior and beautiful color.
I'm making this recipe for the 2nd time (in the oven, as I write this), and it's delicious. I followed the sauce ingredients as written. The only changes I made: I used 4 large chicken thighs, (about 1 lb) and baked it in the oven at 350, for 55 min. That's also the method I used last time, cause it's cold and rainy outside. I like extra sauce, so even though chicken weight was reduced, kept the sauce the same. Will serve over rice. Yummy.
