Today's barbecue recipe is actually for indoor cooking...it involves chicken and a terrific, old-fashioned
flavored sauce which smothers the chicken while it bakes. You will love this recipe!
Diane's Oven–Barbecued Chicken
¼ C cider vinegar
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 ½ to 3 pounds whole chicken, skinned and cut into pieces
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small saucepan, heat oil over moderately high heat. Add onion and cook for 5 min. until onion is tender. Stir in ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer, covered, for 10 min.
Remove and discard chicken skin; cut chicken into pieces. Rinse chicken, drain and pat dry. Arrange pieces in a lightly greased 13x9x2 baking dish. Spoon sauce over chicken, cover with foil and bake for 20 min. Uncover, and bake 20-25 more minutes more or until chicken is cooked through. Remove pieces to platter and spoon sauce from the pan onto chicken. Serve.
*Chicken is done when the meat is tender and can be pulled easily away from itself or the bone.
**If you do not care for dark meat, substitute chicken breasts for the whole chicken.
Side dishes: Serve with a buttered, baked potato and a steamed vegetable or hot baked beans.
