DIRECTIONS

  • In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat.
  • Brown the chicken pieces, in batches if necessary to avoid crowding the skillet.
  • When nicely browned on all sides, remove chicken, drain briefly and place in a large ovenproof casserole dish.
  • Add the chopped onion and celery to the oil remaining in the skillet.
  • Cook until the vegetables soften, 5-8 minute.
  • Add the vinegar, brown sugar, lemon juice, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, prepared mustard and 1 cup of water.
  • Mix well and taste; adjust seasoning to your taste.
  • Add red pepper flakes, to taste.
  • Simmer the sauce for 30 min to blend the flavors together.
  • While sauce is simmering, preheat the oven to 325ºF.
  • Pour the sauce over the browned chicken in the casserole dish.
  • Cover the dish with foil and bake for about 1 hour, or until the juices run clear.
