Hot & Sweet Chicken

This is a yummy recipe that my sister-in-law passed on to me several years ago. It's fairly simple and quick to make. Don't be fooled by the name of this recipe or the fact that it contains hot sauce. The hot sauce is totally hidden beneath the preserves so there isn't a hint of heat in it.

Hot & Sweet Chicken

1 cup apricot preserves
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tsp. bottled minced garlic
1-2 tsp. hot pepper sauce
12 chicken drumsticks or 4 breasts

Mix everything, except the chicken, in a sauce pan.
Heat on stove till preserves are melted.
Pour over chicken & bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.
(I like to line my baking sheet with foil for this recipe. It really saves you from a big sticky mess!)
