Tangy Baked Chicken © 1961

2 1 1/2 to 2lb. frying chickens, cut into pieces
1 7-ounce bottle 7-Up
1/2 cup salad oil
1 medium onion, grated
1 clove garlic, grated
1 teaspoon rosemary
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Place chicken pieces in a deep dish. Combine 7-Up with remaining ingredients, pour over chicken and cover dish. Let stand in refrigerator about 3 hours, turning once or twice. Remove chicken from sauce and bake at 425ºF. in a shallow pan, brushing remaining sauce over chicken several times. Bake 30 to 45 minutes. Makes 6 servings.

* Growing up, my dad was a soft drink distributor and 7-Up was one o the brands he carried, so I grew up drinking it and I've actually make this dish quite often. I prefer to use boneless chicken breasts, though. If you're skeptical, don't be. It's really delicious.

7-Up Goes to a Party!

my ex mother in law used to use 7 Up on her hams. Delicious!
