This is all it takes folks:
Slice a giant onion and spread on the bottom of a 9x13 pan
Lay chicken on top of this. I usually use thighs.
Mix together 1/2 cup ketchup, 1/2 cup maple syrup (I used pancake syrup), 1/4 cup vinegar, 2 TBL mustard.
Spread sauce over chicken pieces
Bake uncovered for 45-60 minutes @ 350*
Serve over rice
Hope you enjoy it! It's a hit with our family, even my anti rice hubby!
Here's the short version:
Smokey Mountain Chicken
1 onion sliced
3 lbs chicken pieces: legs, thighs or breast pieces
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup vinegar
2 TBLS mustard
Place onions in the bottom of 9x13 pan. Arrange chicken over onions. Combine remaining ingredients pour over chicken, covering completely. Bake uncovered at 350* for 45- 60 minutes, basting serveral times. Chicken is finished when juices run clear after meat is pierced with a fork.
