This recipe is terrific I love it. Changes: I use boneless skinless chicken breasts and add 2 cloves of crushed garlic to the sauce. I double the sauce but not the onion soup mix just use one packet. Also I throw a bunch of chopped onion on the chicken before adding the sauce. I like to take the cover off halfway through cooking so the sauce reduces and thickens. Read More

This was so darn easy. I had some chicken drumsticks to make and had no idea what to do with them when I came across this recipe. I didn't have enuf ketchup to double it so I added a 1/2 c. of our favorite bbq sauce; YUMMY and there was lots of sauce too. I also layered the bottom of the pan with sliced onions... this will DEFINITELY be a keeper in our house!!! Read More

This was very good but I doubled the sauce and cooked it the second time uncovered! It gave the chicken a crispier skin and was much better. Read More

Try this! You won't be sorry. I had a package of chicken thighs and a desire to do something different without having to go shopping for additional ingrediants. Who doesn't have the five ingrdients needed for Chicken Hurry? I prepared as directed except I added crushed fresh garlic and used thighs vs a whole bird. My husband and kids loved this recipe. There are nights when you want to cook an exquisite meal and then there are nights when you want something fast easy & delicious. This is a keeper Thanks Liz Read More

I LOVED this recipe!! I would give it 10 stars if I could. I wish I had thought to add onions to the bottom of the pan as Melissa suggested. Will do that next time. I doubled the ketchup water and brown sugar; but used only one package of onion soup mix. and the sauce was wonderful on mashed potatoes. Only problem was we ran out of sauce before potatoes; so I will make more sauce next time! Read More

So simple yet so good! I used boneless skinless chicken breasts. I omitted the sugar (totally not necessary) added 1/2 c. chili sauce 1/2 c. red wine and lots of fresh minced garlic. Also layered bottom of pan with sliced sweet peppers and onions. My daughter an aspiring chef demanded to know what was in the incredible sauce. When I told her she didn't believe me. This is not barbeque sauce. It's just a plain simple and good basic recipe. As with other reviewers I will double the sauce next time. Read More

This recipe was very good and reminded me of a recipe my mom used to make. I changed this recipe a little. I used chicken legs instead of thighs. I doubled the sauce but kept the original amount of brown sugar and only used half the package of onion soup mix. I also layered the bottom of the pan with sliced onions. There was only enough sauce to put about a large spoonful over each piece of chicken. I want enough sauce to pour it over and cover the chicken as well as an inch or so in the bottom of the pan. So after spooning the sauce I added water to the bottom of the pan atleast enough to cover the onions. It came out really good. My husband liked it but said it was a little too sweet so next time I think I will omit the brown sugar all together. I also seasoned the chicken with pepper and garlic powder before putting sauce on it. This was very easy so I will make it again. Read More

Teriffic and easy meal. I didn't have a whole bird so I used 8 boneless skinless chicken breasts (which is apprx 3lbs) and added 1/2 TBLS minced garlic. Served over rice and a side of steamed veggies. Right blend of tastes and now that the school year is starting a quick meal. Will make this one again!! Read More
