Sweet Chicken

Sweet Chicken

My kids love this chicken, the gravy is great on top of rice. Make it in advance-the longer it sits in the gravy, the better it is. It freezes well too.

  • 8 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts or thighs
  • ¾ cup water
  • ½ cup sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • ⅔ cup ketchup
  • ⅓ cup mustard
  • Parsely or chives to garnish


1 Mix water, sugar, oil, vinegar, ketchup, and mustard.
