Everyone liked this! I did cut the butter in half and still had plenty of sauce - maybe it depends on the size chicken pieces you're using (I cooked drumsticks). I followed the advice of another reviewer and turned the oven up to 375 for the last 15 minutes to brown the chicken more.


Excellent!! Very moist and full of flavor!! This is one recipe that I will make over and over again. The sauce is wonderful!! I turned the oven up to 375 degrees the last l5 minutes of bake time, just enough to brown the top of the chicken. Top with sauce when serving. Great with baked potatoes. Very easy and quick recipe. Thanks for sharing.


I also used chicken breasts for this one. I felt the sauce was a little too thin and could have used more flavor. If I did this one again, I might brown the chicken and add a mixture of cornstarch and water to the sauce to give it more consistency.
