Will's Sticky Chicken

Those of you who have a Facebook page will appreciate this...On a typical BUSY day for me, I was tired of cooking "the same ol' quick dinners" and I couldn't think of anything new or exciting to make, so on my "status update" I asked if any of my Facebook friends, out there in cyber world, had any fantastic, easy recipes that I could whip up. I was thrilled when so many people responded, even sending me their recipes. One particular recipe caught my eye that night because it was from a friend of my son. They had gone to school together and I was excited to see that HE COOKED. I know, I shouldn't be surprised, but there aren't a lot of college age boys that cook from scratch...they eat out or they go to the girls apartment next door...OR they cook prepared, frozen YUCKY food...BUT this was an actual recipe and he admitted that he had really cooked it! "WOW"...I thought, "I will have to give this one a try"....and the rest is history. I cooked it up for dinner and I have to say, it was scrumptious! We all loved it. I have made it several times since and even had to ask him AGAIN for the recipe, because I had lost it. This last time I thought I would give it a try in the slow cooker. It worked out super well and there was less mess...and no 80 degree house from having the oven on. We love this recipe and it has gone in my pile of recipes that we eat often...Thanks Will!!!!

Will's Sticky Chicken

Chicken (thighs, legs, breasts etc...anything you want)

Place chicken in a 9x13 baking pan. Prepare sauce.

1 c. ketchup
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. oil
2 T. lemon juice
1 T. mustard
1 t. salt

Mix and pour over raw meat. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees. Serve with rice or your favorite side dish.
(We served ours with rice and poured the sauce over the rice...YUM)

*if using your slow cooker...Place meat in and pour sauce over the top. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4...or until the chicken is cooked through. As you know, slow cooker times vary....it all depends on YOUR particular slow cooker.

Happy Cooking~
