Sweet and Tangy Chicken

(Oven or Slow Cooker Recipe)

This was actually a slow cooker recipe that I found in a taste of home magazine; but I made it using the oven and it is a new favourite in our house! I’ve been looking for re-vamped chicken recipes – chicken can be such a boring meat – this one works well.


1 medium onion chopped
1.5 teaspoon minced garlic
2-4 chicken breasts or in a slow cooker you an even use a broiler/fryer chicken
2/3 cup of ketchup
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon each of chili powder and lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
2 tablespoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons cold water


In a baking dish (or slow cooker), combine the onion and garlic; top this with the chicken. In a small bowl, combine the ketchup, brown sugar, chili powder, lemon juice, basil, salt, pepper and hot sauce. Pour this over the chicken.

Cover and cook at 350 until cooked in the oven. In the slow cooker cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours until the chicken juices run clear. Remove the chicken and keep warm.

Transfer the juices to a saucepan, combine the cornstarch and water – stir into juices and bring to a boil for 2 minutes; until thickened.
