Sticky Baked Chicken


sticky-baked-chicken

After the mess the other night things are now back on track. I had my daughter make the chicken to prove that mistakes happen and we move on. They are not permanent. She did a great job. We were at Western Michigan University yesterday and the kids saw two take-out delivery trucks stopping at the dorms. Both kids began listing the foods they can make or cook so that they will not have to spend their money on delivery. It warmed my heart!

Verdict:

My family really liked the chicken. This dish was super simple to make – 5 ingredients. It takes about an hour to bake but 5 minutes to put together.  They all liked how the flavor was through the chicken not just on the outside.

I had originally planned on serving this dish with rice but we were all out and I refused to go to the store. We had Amish egg noodles on hand so that is what we had for dinner with green beans.

      I buy them when they are $.87 or less a lb. My family eats too much meat and I like that they are “portioned” for the kids.
