I’m sure it has a different name, but to us it’s known as Rick’s Favorite Chicken.  If you need a new chicken recipe in your life, THIS is one to try!

What’s so special about it?  Hands down the juicy sauce!  The ketchup, brown sugar, onions and vinegar combine to make a mouth watering blend of goodness.  Poured over the chicken and baked together until the chicken is fully cooked, this sauce is SO GOOD.

We ALWAYS make this dish with baked potatoes.  In fact, this really should be called “Rick’s Favorite Chicken and Baked Potatoes” because at our home, the potatoes play an important role.

Most of the time I will one-and-a-half times the juice so that there is enough to spoon onto our baked potatoes!  Spoon PLENTY of sauce on your potato!! And don’t forget to add a big dollop of sour cream!!

Mmmm… SO GOOD!!

We make it mostly for Sunday dinner, however it’s an easy fix for any night of the week.  It’s “Picky Kids Tested” on my two youngest who are tricky to feed and they LOVE it and have loved it for years.  That is, as long as they can scrape off the onions. 😉  The baking dish that I use for this recipe is HERE.


If you are looking for a great dessert to go along with this dinner, how about at THIS ONE or THIS ONE!  They are both favorites around here as well, and it’s always neighborly to share FAVORITES, right??

If you try it, please let me know in the comments how your family likes it!

Here’s hoping it’s a new favorite!!!
