Honey Barbecued Chicken

This dish has plenty of taste and eye appeal. It's baked to perfection in an onion tomato sauce that's both sweet and spunky.—Debbi Smith, Crossett, Arkansas

    A tasty recipe that my family enjoyed, although not a deep barbecue flavor. The chicken I used released a LOT of liquid, so I removed the sauce and boiled it down to thicken.
