  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and brush the foil with melted butter.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the vinegar, water, mayonnaise, horseradish, sugar, salt and pepper until well blended. Coat each piece of chicken heavily with the sauce, and place onto the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake, uncovered, for about 45 minutes in the preheated oven. Baste occasionally with remaining sauce. Chicken is done when the juices run clear, and the meat is no longer pink. Serve with rice or noodles.

Very tasty and easy to make. Definitely great with beer.

Very quick and easy recipe! I made using 8 chicken thighs, followed as written, and turned the broiler on for an extra couple of minutes to crisp up the skin at the end. They turned out moist a...
