Oven Barbecued Chicken 1960s Style --- From Great Grandma's Kitchen

Welcome to The {Not Just} Homemaking Party! I've been going through my great grandma's recipe boxes and having a blast making some of the recipes she cut from magazines and newspapers in the 50s and 60s. It's fun to imagine her at her table, planning her weekly menu based on the fun new things she wanted to try out on her family.

I've made this Barbecued Chicken recipe twice this month and my family loves the way it tastes. I love it because I know what's going into the sauce mix. I think I'll move from using canned soup to using tomato sauce, though. It will be less expensive and that way I can say I made it completely from scratch!

Oven Barbecued Chicken--1960s Style
2 lb. chicken parts (I use legs)
2 TB. shortening
1 can tomato soup (or 10 oz. tomato sauce + 1 TB sugar)
1/3 c. each chopped onion and celery
1/2 tsp. minced garlic (1 clove)
2 TB. brown sugar
2 TB. Worcestershire Sauce
2 TB. lemon juice
2 tsp. mustard
2-4 drops red pepper sauce

Brown chicken parts in shortening and mix remaining ingredients in a bowl. When chicken is browned, stir in sauce, cover, and simmer 45 minutes or until the chicken in tender, stirring occasionally.

I served ours with mashed potatoes and salad. Yum!
