This sweet and spicy pulled baked chicken (that's a mouthful I know but this chicken is just that; a delicous mouthful) is so easy, juicy, light and tasty! My friend Jennifer shared the recipe with me. Her friend Melinda L. shared it with her. I love when a recipe has some history behind it. You know it's amazing if a recipe has been "around the block." That means it's delicious enough to share and now I'm sharing it with you.

  • 4 chicken breasts

Sauce Ingredients:


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Combine all the sauce ingredients in a sauce pan, mix and simmer for 3-4 minutes then set aside.
  3. Place 4 chicken breasts in a 9 x 13 baking dish then pour sauce over the chicken. Using tongs, coat the chicken in the sauce.
  4. Cover baking dish tightly with foil, bake 10 minutes at 450°F, then 1 ½ hours at 350°F (no need to turn the chicken while baking).
  5. After the time is up, remove chicken from the oven. Using a couple forks, pull the chicken apart. The chicken will soak up the sauce and become ultra juicy and flavorful.
  6. Serve over rice or buckwheat kasha. Seriously this chicken is delicious!
