Fast, easy and so tasty, this chicken is sweet, tangy and moist. I serve with rice, but mashed potatoes are good too. Comfort food from my grandma.

  • Stir together the onion, ketchup, cider vinegar, brown sugar, ground mustard, ginger, and salt and pepper in a saucepan until the mixture is well combined. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and simmer until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes, stirring frequently.

  • Pour the sauce over the chicken, cover the dish with foil, and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the foil, and bake the chicken breasts until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, and the sauce is slightly browned and bubbling, about 10 more minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Very good. I like barbecue flavored chicken but don't care for shredded barbecue chicken....this is perfect. A bit of different flavor with the addition of ginger. I served this with rice and a veggie...a keeper. Read More

This recipe has potential. It reminds me very much of my cola chicken recipe i use.....i found the amout of cider vinegar VERY overpowering i would reduce it to about 1/4 cup.....and probably decrease the brown sugar as well.....theres lots of sweet in the ketchup. Some other liquid would need to be added though.....it would be too thick otherwise. Maybe just some chicken broth. It has potential...but need some major tweaking. The acidity was too high.

I LOVED this recipe! So fresh and tangy with ingredients everyone has on hand. I can see how some might think the vinegar is too strong but I personally loved the tanginess of this dish. It would be easy to reduce the amt. of vinegar to one's taste. I would definitely recommend this dish and will be making it often.:) Read More

This was not good. The smell in my house was over powering the taste also. My husband refused to even try it. I am sorry maybe it just isn't for everyone. Read More

We really liked this dish. Sweet and sour is nicely balanced in the abundant sauce. I used skinless bone-in chicken thighs and threw some broccoli over the top for the last 10 minutes. Next time I will add even more vegetables. Read More
