I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, in this post, the things we had for a birthday meal. Our meat was called ‘Sticky Chicken’ and I had several people ask for the recipe. And I am finally posting it here for you! It’s a yummy one.
The recipe includes ketchup, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, and hot sauce. Using cute, fun measuring utensils and a pretty clear glass bowl to mix it up is optional but it makes if more fun and makes for better photos too. I’m a blogger, what can I say 😀
Mixing the sauce well with a wire whisk is essential.
I used boneless thighs, but you could use any cut of chicken you prefer and I’m sure it would be just as yummy.
When I first had this recipe is was from the monthly food swap I have participated in for about 4 years now. We had the chicken for lunch on a Wednesday when my Mom was over to help with school. We all liked it a lot and my Mom requested it when I asked what she wanted for her birthday dinner. So I got the recipe from my friend.
I am going to link you to the original recipe and then post the recipe as I used it here. The original has some more steps to it – dipping and frying the chicken before you put it in the sauce and baking it. I’m sure those steps would make it truly seem more ‘sticky’. You can view the recipe here.
The way I fixed it, like my friend had, is to basically just use the sauce as a marinade.
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup vinegar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 1 TBS soy sauce
- 1 TBS hot pepper sauce
- Up to 3 pounds chicken cut up
- Mix first 6 ingredients together, whisking till smooth. Put chicken in a large ziploc bag. Pour sauce over chicken, sealing bag tightly. Put in refrigerator for at least an hour. Put chicken and sauce into baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes to an hour.
My sister found this handy-dandy recipe plug-in, and I stole the idea from her. I love the option to quickly and easily print a recipe when I want to try. No finding a piece of paper and taking the time to write it all down. Or copying and pasting into word to print from there. Simply click the print button above the recipe and viola! you should have a printed copy waiting in your printer in just moments.
And just for fun – how about a sneak peek of my daughters’ Easter dresses? Would you like that? Here ya go!
Full reveal may not happen till after Easter but rest assured that I will post pics when all Easter outfits are finished – I’m thinking it would be lovely if we had a warm, sunny Easter Sunday and could get some fun pics of everyone outside. IN SANDALS! 😉
If you try the Sticky Chicken, let me know what you think! And if you try it the way the original recipe is written, let me know that too! I am going to do it someday I keep telling myself but this way is just so easy and quick.
