Oven Baked Chicken with Ginger Plum Sauce

Oven Baked Chicken with Ginger Plum Sauce

Saucy oven baked chicken recipes are great for weeknight cooking.

Take 10 minutes to mix the sauce the evening before, put it in the oven when you get home from work and let it cook while you wind down from the day. It's that simple.

A baked chicken recipe I often make is the Begging for More Barbecue Chicken from The Cook-a-Palooza Experience Cookbook. In fact I've made it so many times I can rhyme off the ingredient list as easily as the lyrics to my favorite songs. 

This Oven Baked Chicken with Ginger Plum Sauce is similar in how it's prepared. The difference is this sauce is made with a flavorful combination of Asian inspired ingredients!

The plum sauce makes it sweet, the ginger and seasoned rice vinegar add some kick and you can just taste the curry and cilantro in the background.

What I like best is when the sauce runs down the sides of the chicken and is absorbed by the bed of rice it's served on! So good!
