There's something in this tasty chicken dinner for everyone. This two-in-one recipe is a great way to please everyone with just one package of chicken. The two different sauces add fun and variety to any dinner party. 

Ingredients

Chicken
  • 1 5-pound family pack chicken pieces
    Cherry Barbecue Chicken
    • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 2 tablespoons of your favorite BBQ sauce
    • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
    • 1/4 cup maraschino cherry juice
    Sticky Sweet Candied Chicken
    • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
    • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
    • tablespoons honey
    • tablespoons hoisin sauce
    • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
    • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

    Preparation

    Preheat oven to 425 F.

    Pat chicken completely dry with paper towels.

    For the cherry-barbecue chicken:

    In a medium bowl, mix together all sauce ingredients. Reserve 3-4 tablespoons and set aside.

    Toss half of the chicken pieces in the sauce until completely covered.

    For the sticky and sweet candied chicken:

    In a medium bowl, mix together all ingredients. Keep out 3-4 tablespoons and set aside.

    Toss the remaining chicken pieces in the sauce until completely covered.

    To cook:

    1.

    Arrange all of the chicken pieces two different foil-lined baking sheets.

    2.

    Bake for 20 minutes, then flip each piece and spoon over reserved sauce. Bake for an additional 20-25 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the thickest chicken pieces reaches 165 F.

    3.

    When done, let stand for at least 5 minutes to let the juices reabsorb into the meat before serving.
