There are 10 inches of snow laying on the ground outside my front door, but I want barbecue chicken. What's a girl to do? Make this recipe!
If the flavors of the sweet and smoky sauce don't appeal to you, use one cup of your favorite MSPI-friendly barbecue sauce. If your barbecue sauce is too thick for easy use, just thin it out with a splash of water.
This is such an easy recipe and economical, too, because chicken legs are a very inexpensive cut. Serve the chicken with mashed potatoes. Comfort food at its best!
Sweet Smoky Chicken Legs
Source: Taste of Home
2 medium onions, sliced
3 lbs. chicken legs, skin removed
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tbsp. prepared mustard
1 tbsp. salt
1/2 tsp. MSPI-friendly liquid smoke
Place onions in greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish; arrange chicken in a single layer over onions. Combine the remaining ingredients and pour over all, completely coating chicken.
Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour or until a meat thermometer reads 170°, basting several times.
Tip: Can't find MSPI-friendly liquid smoke? Try substituting a teaspoon of MSPI-friendly Worcestershire sauce. The sauce won't have the smoky flavor, but it'll still taste mighty good.
