Main ingredients

Start Cooking

Prepare the Chicken

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).

  2. Lay chicken pieces in a 9x13-inch pan or oven-to-tableware dish. Season lightly with onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and paprika. Cover and bake for one hour.

  3. Meanwhile, mix together the cranberry sauce, duck sauce, sherry, and honey in a medium-sized bowl until relatively smooth. 

  4. Remove chicken from oven and toss with the cranberry mixture. Return chicken to oven and bake uncovered for an additional 45-60 minutes.

    Sweet and Sour Chicken

    Long Cooking time?

    the total 2 hr cooking time at that temperature for chicken seems excessive to me. Doesn't the meat dry out?

    I hear you Natalie. I have definitely done dark meat for an hour and a half. I will double check. I think the best way to make chicken, since size of pieces is such a variable that will affect the outcome, is to test it with an oven thermometer at the 1 and a half hour mark. If it's 160 you are good to go.

    HI Rivka. I am not sure where you can find this exact ingredient in Israel. I will contact someone who would be answer that better. In the meantime, have no fear! (Not that cooking should ever instill fear.) You can substitute the sherry with a nice Cabernet, or even better, a Merlot. And if you still feel that fear, take a swig or two of them while you are cooking...
