Sticky Chicky

"The original recipe was in "Eat, Shrink and Be Merry" by Janet and Greta Podleski. I have tweaked it a tiny bit for my family's tastes. We all loved this. It is a bit of a nuisance to have to pour off the sauce at the end there, but it is SO worth it! I love this served over white rice."

Ready In:




  • Preheat oven to 400°F Spray a 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray. Arrange chicken thighs in pan in single layer.
  • Whisk together sauce ingredients (barbecue sauce through cumin) in a medium bowl. Pour evenly over chicken. Turn pieces to coat both sides with sauce. Bake, uncovered, for about 40 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink in the center.
  • Remove chicken from pan and keep warm. Carefully pour sauce from pan into a small pot. Bring to a boil over medium high heat. Combine cornstarch with water and mix until smooth. Add to sauce. Cook until sauce is bubbly and thickened, about 1 minutes. Serve hot chicken with extra sauce on top.

  1. I changed to 4 chicken breasts instead of thighs. I baked at 375 for 1 hour. I added the cornstarch right in with the other ingredients and it was nice and thick when done. I LOVE THIS RECIPE and so does my family.
  2. I la-la-la-la-la LOVE sticky chicky.
  3. The sauce for this chicken is TDF. I kinda screwed up and did like a previous reviewer and added all the ingredients together at once. No thickened up nicely and made a tasty sauce over rice. <br/>Thanks Lou~
  4. Here's a recipe that has it all--easy, on-hand ingredients, quick and tasty. We can't ask for more than that. I followed Niesgirl's suggestion to use chicken breasts at 375 for about an hour. That worked well--thanks, Saturn!
  5. 5 Stars! This was delicious! I am not good with chicken and usually end up with dry chicken, but the delicious sauce kept the chicken so moist! I actually did not have barbeque sauce, I used a Heinz sauce, some type of chicken sauce or something, and cut back on the vinegar, but kept all the other ingredients the same. I can't wait to try this again with barbeque sauce! Thanks so much for posting the recipe.
