Sweet & Sour Chicken legs

(sauce is also excellent on meatballs - even frozen ones if you're in a hurry! )

At least a Dozen chicken legs..... (plan 3-4 per person, the recipe is a cinch to double)
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Package Dry Onion Soup Mix
1 Splash of Vinegar
1 Cup of Kachup (yes....kachup!)
1 Cup of HOT water

Add the Onion soup mix to the brown sugar in a bowl and mix/press out any big lumps. Add the splash of vinegar and stir until completely dissolved. Add the cup of Katchup, stir.... and then the Hot water, Stir.

place the chicken legs (single layer preferabley unless you're doubling the recipe) in a large roaster and pour sauce over. Cover and bake in a 400 degree oven for 1 hr (for a dozen single layer legs) or 1.5 hrs (for a double recipe).

Falling off the bone good! Mmmmm....... serve over rice. I'll only eat 1 or 2 legs if they're shake n' baked but you really won't eat less than 3-4 of these, lol.....

For frozen (precooked) meatballs, just pour the sauce over them in a roaster and bake for 30-45 min at 350 degrees - too easy (and NO complaints from the kids!! )
