Oven Roasted Sweet and Sticky Chicken

Gluten Free Living – 2016

Oven Roasted Sweet and Sticky Chicken is another delightful one-dish chicken entree. You know my penchant for easy one-dish meals. They’re usually a lot healthier and less calories than pasta dishes or our favorite Tex-Mex entrees. (Even though we love all of those kinds of foods). This chicken dish consists of basted chicken over top of potatoes and carrots. It’s really delicious. It’s also gluten free.

Back in August we had a friend whose sister passed away. Even though it was somewhat expected it was still a very difficult time. I offered to bring them a meal, but his wife has Celiac Disease so I was very careful to make a gluten free dessert and meal for them. I came across this recipe and decided to give it a try. I loved the sweet and sticky glaze and thought it was a great idea to add onions and green bell peppers to the potatoes and carrots on the bottom of the dish.

While the original recipe called for removing the chicken if it was cooked and allowing the veggies to cook longer, my veggies were ready when the chicken was. All in all, I thought it was a very good recipe and one worth making over and over again. I especially liked the sweet and sticky sauce made from ketchup (without HFCS or preservatives), maple syrup, honey, molasses and seasonings to amp up the flavor. It had an excellent taste.

If you’re in a pinch, and want to make a delicious one-dish meal for your family but you’re tired of your usual offerings, I highly recommend Oven Roasted Sweet and Sticky Chicken. It’s a great new take on chicken that you’re sure to find savory and delicious.

While I used a whole chicken cut-up, you can use boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, if you prefer.

Grease a 10×17″ glass baking dish. Place cut-up veggies on the bottom of the dish. Top with chicken pieces, then add slivers of butter. Drizzle any remaining sauce from the chicken bowl (NOT the main sauce bowl), over top of the chicken. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.

Heat through. Remove from heat and set aside.

After 30 minutes remove chicken from oven and baste again with thickened sweet and sticky sauce. Bake an additional 30 minutes or until chicken and veggies both test done.

My chicken and veggies were both cooked through at the same time. If necessary, remove chicken and keep warm and allow veggies to continue cooking in oven until fork tender.

The Sweet and Sticky Sauce is superb. This one uses maple syrup, honey, molasses and ketchup along with several seasonings. I was careful to use a ketchup without HFCS, MSG or other preservatives to keep this recipe as clean as possible.
