I made this tonight but did not have all the necessary ingredients. I used Dijon mustard and yellow mustard instead of mustard powder. I added a little hot pepper flakes cumin paprika and chili powder to the rest of the ingredients. I also added a tsp of white sugar to add a little more sweetness. It turned out delicious! I will definately be making this again! Very moist for baked chicken and full of flavor. Read More

Blah! Way too ketchup-y! I tried adding more of the other ingredients to tone down the ketchup taste but was unsuccessful. All we could taste was ketchup and a little bit of chicken. Won't ever make this one again. Good you anyone who has a ketchup deficiency. Read More

This was good but like other reviewers I thought it tasted a little too ketchupy. Next time I will modify the sauce ingredients to match a sauce for oven-barbecued beef that I've always liked from one of my old Betty Crocker cookbooks: 1/2 cup chopped onions 3/4 cup ketchup 1/2 cup vinegar (can use apple cider vinegar) 1 Tbsp. brown sugar 3/4 cup water 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce 1 Tbsp. prepared mustard 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/8 tsp. pepper. B.C. says to simmer it for 5 minutes but I don't think it would hurt to simmer it for up to 15 minutes to meld the flavors. If anybody out there tries this let me know how it turns out. Also I baked the chicken for 25 minutes turned it basted it with the sauce and baked it for an additional 20 minutes. It came out fork tender. I'm from the old school of cooking and still believe in cooking chicken parts and porks chops for at least 45 minutes total. They've always turned out great! Read More

My husband liked this recipe so I will probably make it again; but I ended up putting sauce from a bottle on my plate to eat it because I didn't think the sauce was all that great. And I agree with others....there is no way that this chicken is ready to eat in 25 minutes. Make sure to allow more cooking time. Read More

I loved this chicken. It was very good and didn't require getting the grill going which was nice. Just mix everything together and pop in the oven. Great with rice. Read More

I greatly enjoyed this recipe. My husband is very picky on what he eats and even he was very pleased. I did cut back on the ketchup and used only a 1/2 cup. It was great. I will definately be making this again. Read More

I put only half the ketchup and in its place I put 1/4 cup of Hoisin sauce. My husband is Chinese so we always have it available. It gave it a fantastic tangy taste. Definitely would have this again. You can get Hoisin sauce in the Asian section of the grocery store. Definitely in Chinatown. Read More

I had such high hopes for this. I followed the recipe exactly. Just really tasted like baked chicken with ketchup on it. It's edible but not something I think I would fix again. Shredded leftovers and made sandwiches the next night. Sorry! Just didn't work for us. Read More

I liked the idea of not using bottled bbq sauce and this was very easy to throw together but it was too ketchupy as written. I upped the other ingredients to cut the ketchup while it was simmering. I would definitely make this again because it's simple and will try adding other spices to cut the ketchup some more. Read More

This recipe BLEW me and my family away! I doubled the recipe for my extended family of 9 (plus lunches the next day). The only changes I made were using apple cider vinegar rather than white I used Splenda brown sugar blend and added a bit of molasses. After pouring the sauce over the chicken I heated B&M country style beans in the pot to take on some of the flavor. Amazing! Will definitely make again! Read More
