Sticky Sweet Chicken

Sticky Sweet Chicken in 35 Minutes!

I know that we’ve had people ask why there are so many chicken recipes here. Well, a lot of people eat chicken and often. These recipes are also very very simple. If you eat a lot of chicken, then you tire of it pretty quickly. It’s nice to always have a new recipe to pull out and try.

This chicken looks different from anything that I have ever tried. It has molasses, honey, and maple syrup. It’s a sticky sweet chicken dish, and honestly, it looks great. 

This really is a one dish meal, and those are my favorites. There are veggies getting roasted with the chicken. They’re in that thick, sweet sauce getting flavored and carmelized. If you have kids who are a little leery of vegetables, this is a great dish for them!

  2. the time is a lie!!!!!!! it says bake for 20 minutes – then add something and bake another 20-25 minutes!!!!! that is 40-45 minutes, not including the prep time and preheat the oven time….what a scam click bait title!!!!

  3. Ann, thank U for the recipe. I agree that it is distrubing to have all the advertisement to get to the recipe.
    To me this a a lot of ingredients for 4 pcs of chicken. Molasses, ketchup, honey & syrup.

  4. How is this a 35 minute recipe when instructions say bake chicke 25 minutes, then add thicken sauce & continue baking and additional 20-25 minutes. That is 45 minutes plus the preparation time for the vegetsbles, is more than 35 minutes. Also that is a lot of ingredients for 4 pcs of chicken.

  5. The recipe is rediculous. You can get sicky chicken with less ingredients. No thank you. Sometimes people just make up stuff just so they can call it there own when it would cost you more then it has too. Pure maple syrup is very expensive and why have molasses and honey as well. You can get the same thing from ketchup and brown sugar.
