"I used to prepare this chicken for my diabetic mother, and I still make it for myself," says Christine Richburg, Brewton, Alabama. "It turns out so moist."


  • 2 packages (1/2 ounce each) butter-flavored granules
  • 1-1/2 cups tomato juice
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3 pounds), cut up and skin removed


  1. Prepared butter granules according to package directions. Stir in tomato juice, vinegar, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and oregano. Place chicken in a resealable plastic bag. Add half of marinade; seal and refrigerate for 8 hour or overnight. Cover and refrigerate the remaining marinade.
  2. Drain marinade from chicken. Place chicken and reserved marinade in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 1 hour or until juices run clear, spooning marinade over chicken several times.
