A friend made this saucy chicken for us when we had our first child. I pared down the recipe to make it lower in fat and calories. Now it's a family favorite, and even the kids ask for it. —Marge Wagner, Roselle, Illinois

"This is so good! I used 8 chix thighs and doubled the sauce, using one whole chopped onion...which made too much sauce. Next time, I will make 1-1/2 the sauce recipe and use a small onion. (you just can't use too much onion!) I added some hot sauce and liquid smoke. It baked to 170 degrees in 35 min. After baking, I thickened the sauce somewhat with cornstarch to a gravy like consistency. Was wonderful with rice and fresh corn. fhquilting"

"We had this perfectly named chicken tonight as it was very delicious. The sauce makes this chicken. It was just tangy enough yet not too sweet. A perfect blend of flavors.

I halved the recipe for the two of us but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. This is definitely a five-star recipe and I’d give it a few more stars if I could. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor."
