"This is a definate family favorite, the chicken is cooked in a sweet and tangy sauce that will have your family (especially the kids) begging for more! UPDATE: I just made this but also added in 1 cup honey-garlic BBQ sauce, it's even better than before!"

Step 1

Pour the flour into a large ziptop bag or into a shallow bowl. Add the chicken and toss to coat the chicken in the flour.

Step 2

Heat some oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Step 3

Remove chicken pieces from the flour, shake gently to remove any excess flour.

Step 4

Brown the chicken in the pan, seasoning with seasoning salt and pepper while browning (working in batches, if needed, and adding more oil if needed). Place the chicken in a 9x13-inch baking dish.

Step 5

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Step 6

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

Step 7

Bake until the chicken is cooked through, 50 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the thickness of your chicken. Baste the chicken with the sauce every 20 to 30 minutes, you don't have to baste if you added the BBQ sauce. Serve with rice, if desired.

UPDATE: I just made this but also added in 1 cup honey-garlic BBQ sauce, it's even better than before!

We really enjoyed this recipe served with rice and mixed veggies. I made as directed except I forgot the cayenne. Thanks for sharing!

Had to make some minor changes for diatery reasons in that I had to use spring green onions for the onions and cut the brown sugar factor in half but would even cut that back to 1/4 or a 1/3 cup for we felt it was still far more sweet than tang and beside the cayenne I added some red pepper flakes to add some zing and bite which we love. The basic recipe is great but had to change a bit to suit , made for Alphabet Soup tag game.
