whole chicken, cut into pieces
ground black pepper
This was delicious and took almost no effort. I used frozen chicken breasts instead of a whole chicken.
This is sort of a strange flavour. Yes the recipe was easy and the chicken turned out very tender, but we weren't big fans of the sweet taste. I added cayenne and cajun seasoning to spice it up but the cinnamon was overwhelming. Thanks for posting - always happy to try something unique even if it doesn't become a regular.
Wonderful and easy! Loved this chicken! I actually slow cooked it all day, so it was falling off the bone tender and flavourful. During the last hour I added sliced apples and a sprinkle of brown sugar. Delicious! Me and guests loved it. I would try this recipie with pork as well. Thank you!
Can I rate this if I used pork? It was great! I seared the pork chops before baking and only had 1.5 lbs., so there was extra sauce to serve with rice. The only thing I'd eliminate would be the salt. I don't think it's needed with the mustard. Otherwise, this is definitely a "keeper". Maybe sometime I'll try it with chicken.
Great recipe and blending of flavors. I have tried this one a few times and experimented a few times. I agree that this one was intended for pork. I like this little add on I used - 2 T. good bourbon and 1 T finely minced pecans along with a pinch of high quality cayenne pepper. Also, I sub'd a T of honey for one of the T's of molasses. You can't go wrong with the original recipe and this one is fun to play with and find new possibilities.
Made this for dinner last night, it was very good and flavorful. I just used boneless, skinless chicken breast and it turned out wonderful. Husband loved it!
I made it with drumsticks because that's what I had...turned out well! I did make more of the sauce and eased up on the cinnamon...a hit at our house though!
My family loves it! Great for using up those things that seem to sit in the cabinet forever!
