Oven Barbecued Chicken & Creamy Potatoes

For some, Memorial Day is synonymous with family, poolside fun and cookouts. But for some who are lacking a grill to barbecue with (like me) there's still a way to have some amazing cookout food with just the stove in your home. I paired this recipe from the Better Homes & Gardens New Cookbook with some creamy potatoes with cheese and pineapple for a delicious meal.

For Potatoes:
4-6 Russet potatoes
1 large onion sliced into rings
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper
1¼ cups of milk
3 tablespoons butter


Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 375°
2. Peel and finely slice the potatoes and onion
3. Layer the potato and onion slices and cheese in a lightly greased, shallow, ovenproof dish, sprinkling salt and pepper over each layer

4. Pour milk over dish, and dot with butter
5. Cover and bake for 1 hour
6. Remove cover and bake an additional 15 minutes until the potatoes are soft and golden-brown on top. Serve warm

Ingredients for Chicken:
2½-3 pounds meaty chicken pieces (breast halves, thighs, drumsticks)
½ cup chopped onion (1 medium)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon cooking oil
¾ cup bottled chili sauce
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
½ horseradish
¼  teaspoon crushed red pepper


Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 375°. Skin chicken. Arrange chicken, bone sides up in a baking pan. Bake in oven for 25 minutes.
2. For sauce, in a saucepan cook onion and garlic in hot oil until tender but not brown. Stir in chili sauce, honey, soy sauce, mustard, horseradish, and crushed red pepper; heat through.
3. Turn chicken bone sides down. Brush half of the sauce over the chicken. Bake for 20-30 minutes more or until chicken is no longer pink. Reheat remaining sauce; pass with the chicken

This dish actually turned out really well. The creaminess of the potatoes meshed perfectly with the sweet and spicy flavors of the barbecue chicken. If you're looking for a simple meal for Memorial Day, this is it. I hope you all enjoy your memorial day, but don't forget what it's truly about. It's not all just fun and food. Today is a day to honor our fallen servicemen and women and appreciate the ones currently alive and serving. So if you see a vet today, be sure to thank him. It means the world.
