I had some left over Dr Pepper (???) and had to put it to good use. Remember, given enough Dr. Pepper I could rule the world…..so I made the easiest main dish ever- a chicken recipe- and my family loved it. They’ve been asking for Dr. Pepper Chicken ever since. I’ve tried different variations of Dr. Pepper Chicken but I didn’t add as much Dr. Pepper and combined ketchup and barbecue sauce because it was thicker and tastier. Here’s my take:
- 4 -6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- ½ c. Dr. Pepper
- ½ c. barbecue sauce
- ½ c. ketchup
- 1 T brown sugar
- salt and pepper to taste
- Salt and pepper chicken and arrange in a 13 x 9 baking dish.
- Mix together ½ cup of Dr. Pepper, ½ cup of barbecue sauce and ½ cup of ketchup.
- Pour it over the chicken. Sprinkle with brown sugar and bake at 350 degrees uncovered for 1 hour.
- Serve with rice.
