Foods Class Chicken

This morning when he went to school, Pie left us a recipe his Foods class made this week with a request for us to make it for dinner tonight. We did and it was pretty dang good! I think she does a really good job with the kids---makes class fun and teaches them some substantial foods instead of all desserts or something like that. I chose not to go with the "option" of instant mashed potatoes for which there was a recipe at the bottom, figuring that the real thing would be far tastier. Corn served as our veggie. We made absolutely certain to follow the recipe to the T so that Pie wouldn't be aggravated with us for making it wrong. Here is the recipe, exactly as his Foods teacher gave it:

Oven-Barbecued Chicken
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
Dash of pepper
4 chicken pieces (Pie amended this to 3 and noted "chicken breast only" meaning boneless)
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 medium onion, chopped
6 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Combine first 4 ingredients; stir well. Dredge chicken in flour mixture. Pour butter into a 9x9. Arrange chicken in pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Combine remaining ingredients, stirring well. Place in bowl and leave in your lab. Remove chicken from oven, turn; spoon sauce over chicken. Bake an additional 30 minutes. Yield=4 servings
