Root Beer Glazed Chicken Recipe

Root Beer Glazed Chicken Recipe

My husband made some tweaks from the original recipe to suit our tastes and it was fabulous. Our 18 month-old son even loves this chicken recipe! It's the perfect way for me to get out of cooking for a night. —Stacy Kolojay, Streator, Illinois

"Delicious. Served with rice. Could not tell that there was root beer. Will try Luigimon idea next time and will bake for a good glaze."

"Yummy, my husband and I really enjoyed it. That makes two stars. It was easy to prepare and I will continue to make it. That gives it two more stars. If it is that good already it deserves to be a five star."

"Omg This chicken was delicious! I made it with rice. There was plenty of extra sauce. It was a sweet sauce. I did season the chicken a little with onion and garlic powder just because i generally find chicken bland if i dont. Very easy recipe."

"I used a Hormel Original Flavor Pork Tenderloin instead of chicken. I seared the meat and place it in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes. While it was roasting, I mixed and cooked the glaze. I basted the pork and roasted it an additional 20 minutes. Extra glaze was poured over the sliced pork. Sweet and slightly tangy - can't wait to try it with chicken!"
