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.
