I still have the card for this recipe that a friend gave me 25 years ago—the stains on it attest to its frequent use! The chicken turns out juicy and tender, and the sauce makes a tasty gravy.

Ingredients

  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (4 to 5 pounds), cut up
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon chili powder
  • Pinch pepper
  • 2 tablespoons onion soup mix

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet, brown chicken on all sides in oil in batches; drain. Place the chicken in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish and an 8-in. square baking dish.
  2. Combine broth, ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, curry powder, paprika, salt, mustard, chili powder and pepper; pour over chicken. Sprinkle with soup mix. Cover and bake 55-65 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in thigh reads 180°.
