Retro Tuesday: I tried it and it was GOOOOODDDDD!

Good morning fantabulous thrifty readers! I have now 71 followers! Cool! Welcome everyone!

Today is more of a follow up...Remember a couple of weeks ago I did a Retro Tuesday post about Pyrex Prize Recipes? If not you can it HERE .

The BBQ chicken recipe was taunting me....Big time! Even if my pal Maureen thought the bird in the pic was about to take flight!

Even if the sauce recipe was a bit time consuming...lots of veggies to cut. I made the sauce in the morning before going to the postal counter of UNjoy. When I came home (5:20 pm) i threw the chicken with the sauce in Pyrex casseroles in the oven and presto chango- Supper!


The recipe called for  3 packages frozen chicken parts. I used drumsticks because they were on sale and let's face it there's only one bone to deal with. As I grow older I find i'm not to eager to find little bones in the sauce. Also It takes more than 1 hour total to cook. I'd say more like 1:30 total if you want fall of the bone goodness. And I removed the skin-who needs all that fat? I don't. Maybe you do, if so keep the skin!
It was even better reheated!
Don't expect real smoky BBQ flavor, the sauce is very pleasant but not BBQuy at all.
I might try it in the crockpot also....Erin, you up for it?
 So the saying might be true that everything tastes better in Pyrex!

Oh by the way....It doesn't fit in that gorgeous yellow bowl...And the bird is about to take flight!LOL


Does look good! So on this scrumptious note....Have a very happy Retro Tuesday and do drop by my friend Tracy (The Declutterer) on her fab and funny blog Crazy Suburban Mom for more Retro fun.
And don't be shy faithful readers...link in! The more the merrier!

Ohhhhhhh.... That looks yum! And hey. You know, I've never cooked in Pyrex, I just realized that. I should shouldn't I?

I think I'm afraid to cook in my old Pyrex. Talk me into it girl.

Tracy! Why wouldn't you cook in Pyrex?
It was made for oven use! Of course I don't take it directly from the fridge and freezer and shove it in the oven! That could be disastrous!

But I've cooked with it for 4 years now and no problems! Go ahead, let loose, you threw away the doody rug not it's time to cook with Pyrex! Be bold Tracy! You can do it and after blog about it I wanna know!

I hope I've inspired you just as you have inspired me in the past.

It does look very tasty indeed! I love cooking in my old pyrex, i can't get it home and into the sink to wash up fast enough- I generally use it the night it enters my family, ahem I mean my home. Tracy, come on..... you know you want to!.... all the cool kids are doing it.....
