Root Beer Chicken

This recipe can be made several different ways...see below...just make it soon!


3 pounds of chicken
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 cup root beer
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder


Preheat the oven to 350. Coat a 9" x 13" baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Place the chicken pieces in the baking dish. Season with the salt and pepper. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until no pink remains in the chicken and the juices run clear.

In a medium saucepan, combine the remaining ingredients; mix well and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes until reduced by half. Preheat the grill to medium heat. Coat the chicken with the sauce and grill for 5 minutes per side, basting frequently with the remaining sauce. Serve with the remaining sauce for dipping.

If no grill is available, you can cover the cooked chicken with the prepared sauce and bake uncovered another 10 minutes until sauce is sticky.

Another idea we've tried, is to prepare the sauce as directed and put chicken and sauce in the crock-pot until chicken is cooked through.
