Old Ladies On A Bus ( chicken recipe)‏





What a name for a recipe! This one is from ATLANTA COOKNOTES, a Jr. League of Atlanta cookbook.

This recipe was developed from a conversation overheard between two old ladies on a bus. It was then published it in the above cookbook.

Carol found this recipe. She's great finding hidden gems-

Ingredients:

1/3 cup orange marmalade
1/3 cup spicy bbq sauce
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 pounds chicken pieces

salt and pepper

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the marmalade, bbq sauce, Worcestershire sauce and them lemon juice in a bowl and mix well.

Prepare your 9 X 13 inch pan with cooking spray- the original recipe
 used aluminum foil, The spray worked fine, didn't have anything stick.

Place the chicken in the prepared pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Pour the sauce over the chicken and bake one hour- baste it once in awhile.

The original recipe increased the oven to 400 degrees and baked it for another 15 minutes. I only cooked for the hour and thought baking for the additional time would dry it out. I made sure the internal temp. of the chicken was 165 degrees, using my meat thermometer

Simple, easy and good- Gabe and I both really liked it.

Oh, and wait till I put up the recipe for the potatoes we had with the chicken! Talk about another super easy recipe and wow are they good!

  4. The name of this recipe makes me smile-and your photo of the recipe is making me DROOL! It looks amazing-I've gotta give that a try.

    I've been known to give a recipe to someone from memory in the grocery check out line........I'd better look around and pay attention to who's listening-I may see the recipe on line with the title "Old Lady At The Grocery Store Cookies" :)

    Hey Linda you know me-give me a recipe mission and I'll find all kinds........tell me to find something in this house and it's an impossible mission! Hahahahaha.

    Thanks for your super review and I can't WAIT to see what's up with those potatoes-they look delicious.

    1. Carol- remember last winter when I told you about the lady in Walmart who picked up one of the mixes ( Pillsbury Lemonade) that we made cookies with? She was going to make cupcakes and I told her I made cookies with the mix and here I am in walmart, not having the recipe but telling her all about it and the best I could do was get her to a link for the recipe.

      Wonder if they will call me OLD LADY WITH THE LINK?

  5. I have made a recipe very similar to this, only it didn't include the bbq sauce or the lemon juice. It is a favorite of mine. The one I use, just cooks the chicken in a fry pan, but it is delicious. I am drooling now thinking about it, so I may have to make it soon. I always made extra sauce to serve over rice. The sauce it so good.

    The name of the recipe makes me smile. Long long ago, I had a cookbook called the "Myra Breckenridge" cookbook, and it had some very strange names for the recipes. Carol, you made me laugh with your Grocery Store Old Lady .

    Linda, your pictures are amazing. Some of them are so good, you can just see the juicy meat.

    Thanks for this.....I must make this soon

  7. Great name for a dish, and as soon as I see orange marmalade in the ingredients, I'm hooked. I think that was very wise not to add the extra cooking time. Visiting from See Ya in the Gumbo.
