kellys overnight chicken recipeWhen I lived and went to school in Charleston I spent many days and nights with the Richey family.  I watched their children while I was in college and even in my first years of teaching.  They took me in and became my surrogate family.  I was so lucky (and still am) to have them in my life.  The kids were babies when I started caring for them, and now they can drive and have boyfriends.  I spent some time with them this spring and I have to say, that it was bizarre to see them grown up.  But, even with all the time that had passed, it was like I saw them the day before.  Nothing had changed really, and they were even warmer and more wonderful than I remembered.

One of the other reasons that I loved (and still do) spending time at their house was that Kelly is an amazing cook.  When I was visiting, I went through her recipes and picked out a few, and this is now a staple at our house.  This chicken recipe is great because you need to start it the day before, hence the name Kelly’s Overnight Chicken, so when I making dinner the night before, I throw this together.  Then when dinner rolls around the next day, you put the chicken in the oven and throw some green beens in the steamer, maybe a salad, and dinner is ready. This chicken is my favorite combination of sweet and savory.  The marinade becomes a sauce and the chicken is incredibly tender.  Really, you need to make this.

    This would be my second time making the chicken. For some reason I cannot make the “gravy” to thicken out. Can anybody suggest something? Please

    what’s a good sub. for the curry powder if one is not a fan of curry?

    • bakedbree says:

      You could go the opposite direction and do some rosemary or thyme. Totally different, but would be great.
