This is my go-to recipe when I want to make a chicken that is easy, flavorful, and consistently good. It’s the perfect blend of sweet and sour and always results in a moist, delicious dish.
Sweet and Sour Chicken
- Cook & Prep: 2 h
- Serving: 6
Prepare the Chicken
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).
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.
Meanwhile, mix together the cranberry sauce, duck sauce, sherry, and honey in a medium-sized bowl until relatively smooth.
Remove chicken from oven and toss with the cranberry mixture. Return chicken to oven and bake uncovered for an additional 45-60 minutes.
