Chicken simmered in a piquant sauce of mustard, soy sauce, vinegar and ketchup pairs nicely with rice or mashed potatoes on the side.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1/4 cup prepared mustard
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1 cup water
- 1 (3 pound) whole chicken
In a medium pot with a lid, blend together mustard, sugar, soy sauce, white vinegar, ketchup and water in the order listed. Bring the sauce to a boil.
Add the chicken pieces, and turn down the heat. Place the lid slightly ajar on the pot. Simmer for approximately 45 minutes, or till the chicken is no longer pink and the juices run clear.
