This chicken forms it’s own sticky-sweet sauce as it cooks! It’s tender and juicy despite the long cook time.
This is some delicious chicken! I’ve always wanted to try something like this but was put off by the longish cooking time.
I’m glad I decided to try it. The chicken was not dry at all! The sauce infused and gave it marvelous flavor–sticky, sweet and a bit tart. Yummy!
Excellent for wings too
Because this needs approximately 1 1/2 hours to get the sauce clingy and sticky, it’s important that you don’t use breast–either bone-in or boneless. This is a recipe for dark meat, so if you’re not a dark meat lover and only eat white, this isn’t your recipe. Of course you can try it with breast–and if you do, bone-in with skin only, but you’ll be sadly disappointed in the results. I believe the result with boneless skinless would be inedible, IMO.
This would be equally good with wings–use the same method and cook time. What a fantastic appetizer or football snack!
