6 servings


  • 1 cup ketchup

  • ½ cup water

  • cup apple cider vinegar

  • ¼ cup butter, melted

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon paprika

  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 dash steak sauce (such as A.1.®)

  • 3 pounds skinless chicken thighs


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).

  2. Whisk ketchup, water, vinegar, butter, onion, paprika, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt, pepper, and steak sauce together in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, for flavors to blend.

  3. Spread chicken thighs in a single layer in a baking dish. Pour sauce over chicken thighs.

  4. Bake chicken in the preheated oven until thighs are cooked through and sauce is bubbling, about 2 hours. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a thigh should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
