No-Stress Cherry Barbecue Chicken
Serves 4 to 5
One 5-lb. family pack of chicken pieces, plus…
Cherry barbecue chicken sauce made with:
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
2 Tbsp. barbecue sauce
2 Tbsp. hoisin sauce
¼ cup maraschino cherry juice
Preheat the oven to 425°F.
Pat chicken completely dry with paper towels.
In a medium bowl, mix all sauce ingredients together. (Set aside 3 to 4 Tbsp. of sauce as a reserve to use later.)
Toss chicken pieces in the sauce until they are fully covered (remember, keep 3 to 4 Tbsp. of sauce around for later).
Now, arrange the chicken pieces on a foil-lined baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes, then flip the pieces over and pour the 3 to 4 Tbsp. of sauce over them.
Bake the pieces for 20 to 25 minutes more or until the internal temperature of the thickest chicken pieces reaches 165°F.
When finished baking, let the pieces stand for 5 minutes or longer, so that the chicken can properly absorb the juices before serving.
