Marsha Summerfield


1/4 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tbsp prepared mustard
1 thick lemon slice (or 1 tbsp lemon juice)
1/2 cup catsup
1/4 cup chili sauce
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 (2 1/2 lb) broiler-fryer chickens, split in half (I use pieces)
2 tbsp butter or margarine
2 tbsp flour

Preheat oven to 350. Combine first nine ingredients in a saucepan and simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Blend in catsup, chili sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat.

Place chicken in a roasting pan, skin side up. Spoon half the sauce over chicken, cover pan and roast for 30 minutes. Spoon additional sauce over chicken and cook, uncovered for 30 - 45 minutes, adding more sauce and basting several times until chicken is tender. Transfer chicken to a heated serving platter.

Heat 2 tbsp butter in small saucepan. Stir in flour and heat until mixture bubbles. Blend with remaining sauce in roaster. Cook over low heat until sauce thickens, stirring constantly. Spoon over chicken and serve immediately.
