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
Preheat oven to 450°F.
Combine all the sauce ingredients in a sauce pan, mix and simmer for 3-4 minutes then set aside.
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.
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).
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.
Serve over rice or buckwheat kasha. Seriously this chicken is delicious!
