“This is my Mexican sister-in-law's recipe. It's so tender and delicious, most people say it doesn't even taste like chicken! Serve it with the juices left in the pan and a good bread to soak it all up! Yum! Hope you enjoy it!” - by SusieQ
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 9x12-inch baking dish with a cover.
- Place the chicken drumsticks and thighs in the prepared baking dish, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Evenly distribute the ham, pineapple chunks, bacon, and raisins over the chicken.
- Stir together the orange juice and chicken bouillon granules in a bowl, and pour the mixture over the top of the dish. Dot the top evenly with chunks of butter.
- Cover, and bake in the preheated oven until the chicken is very tender and the sauce has started to reduce, about 1 1/2 hours. Uncover, baste the chicken pieces with the juices in the bottom of the pan, and return to the oven until the chicken is golden, about 30 more minutes.
