When I was a young girl, I went with my parents to visit one of their friends. When I married, I wrote to that friend and asked her to share her recipe. Lucky for my, she said yes.


  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 to 3 chicken leg quarters
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon butter, divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green pepper
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Dash pepper


  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine flour and salt. Add chicken, one piece at a time, and shake to coat. In a skillet, brown chicken in 1 tablespoon butter. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. baking dish.
  2. In the same skillet, saute the onion, celery and green pepper in remaining butter until crisp-tender. Add the water, ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10-15 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; pour over chicken. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-50 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.
