Sticky Chicken

So many ways to eat chicken. Funny how we rarely eat just plain chicken anymore. I'm always looking for a marinade or topping. 

This combination was wonderful. It might not make the prettiest of pictures but trust me it was delicious. 

Sticky Chicken Recipe
Adapted from New Yorker By Heart

2 lbs. chicken breasts or thighs

1 onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp. garlic, minced
1 cup red wine vinegar
3 cups ketchup
1 tbsp. dijon mustard
3 tbsp. honey
3 tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp. chili powder

Heat large pan with cooking spray and cook onion and garlic for about 5 - 10 minutes until soft.  Add remaining ingredients and simmer for about 10 minutes. 

Marinate chicken in about a cup or a cup and 1/2 of the sauce.  Marinate overnight if possible in refrigerator.  Save the rest of the sauce in the refrigerator.

Grill chicken while dabbing on the sauce to coat well. Cook until done, using plenty of sauce.

  10. Does it come with a sign that says, "IT's OK to lick your fingers." Yummy.

  11. I just got one of those bad service pages so I am guessing my post did not go through.

    I have never had sticky chicken and I so want to make it. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for being a part of the SRC, Group B, I love being your host (new assignments coming soon)! My recipe was for Frozen Breakfast Burritos. Check it out if you haven't had the chance already, I know I am a few days behind (sorry!)

  20. Your sticky chicken sounds wonderful! Will have to give it a try this weekend

  21. Thanks for sharing the sticky chicken recipe. It seems like New Yorker By Heart has a lot of great recipes to try.

  22. This looks so delicious. I would love to give this a try sometime. Just need to pick up some dijon mustard.

  23. I didn't find this particularly great, it just tasted like a bottled BBQ sauce. I doubt if I'd make it again but if I did I'd add a variety of spices and probably some worchestershire sauce.
