Description

This Candied Chicken is sure to be a family favorite – chicken breasts are cooked in a sweet and tangy sauce that leaves the kids begging for more!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup flour
  • salt and pepper
  • 45 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 3 lbs)
  • 23 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

Pour the flour into a large ziptop bag.  Season with salt and pepper.  Add the chicken and toss to coat the chicken in the flour.

Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add 1-2 tablespoons of the oil.  Brown the chicken in the pan, working in batches, if needed, and adding more oil if needed.  Place the chicken in a  9×13-inch baking dish.

Preheat the oven to 350F.

In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar, water, ketchup, mustard, onion, Worcestershire and salt.  Stir to combine.  Pour the mixture over the chicken.

Bake until the chicken is cooked through, 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes, depending on the thickness of your chicken.  Baste the chicken with the sauce every 20 to 30 minutes.  Serve with rice, if desired.
