Recipe for ginger ale chicken bake – an easy peasy way to get dinner on the table in no time.
8 – 10 chicken portions thighs, legs and breasts skin on
1 packet instant brown onion soup
1 packet instant mushroom soup
1 liter Ginger Ale
Heat your oven to 130 Celsius
Take a large casserole dish that you can place a single layer of chicken pieces to cover the bottom or use more than one oven dish.
Mix together the soup powders and coat eack piece of chicken in a fine coating of the mixture, shake off the excess and the lay skin side up into the casserole dish.
Pour 3/4 of the Ginger Ale into the casserole and then pour the remaing Ginger Ale into whatever is left of the soup powders, give it a mix and then pour over the top of the chicken.
Cover your casserole and pop into the oven for 3 hours. If you don’t have a casserole dish with a lid, cover with foil.
That is that, a delicious meal without any fuss. Serve with rice and salad.
You can fancy it up a bit by adding a few mushrooms 1/2 way through the cooking process or mix in a tablespoon of apricot jam with the ginger ale and soup mix for those who like it a little sweeter.
On a side note, for those of you who make beer can roast chicken, try it with Coke or Ginger Ale for a change!
