Sweet and Smoky Chicken (Gooseberry Patch)

Here is a wonderful dish that combines smoky and sweet elements to give you a dish that my daughter said was the best dinner she had ever eaten. I added a little bit of brown sugar to the original recipe to mellow the molasses a bit. The sauce on top of the chicken gets gooey as it bakes and the onions caramelize nicely. It also reminded me of slow cooked molasses baked beans. Jennifer Eveland-Kupp from Temple, PA describes it as "an old Pennsylvania Dutch recipe sure to please dinner guests." I found this in the Gooseberry Patch Best-Ever Casseroles cookbook.
