Duck Sauce Chicken

Duck Sauce Chicken joyofkosher

This is my famous Duck Sauce Chicken. I've literally gotten calls and numerous requests for the exact "recipe." It was the first chicken dish I learned how to cook, under the tutelage of that great chef I married. This is undoubtedly my hubby's favorite chicken. Although I've spent hours mastering fancier poultry dishes, somehow we always come back to good ol' Duck Sauce Chicken. If it weren't so quick and easy, Hubby would have to find a new favorite.
