Sunshine Chicken (don't know where the name came from)

This has been my "go-to" recipe for a few years when I want something a little more than regular baked chicken. I always have the ingredients on hand and it is so nice and juicy, but nothing extremely fancy.

3 pounds Chicken Thighs or Drumsticks (chicken breast would be good too!)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup corn syrup
1 pinch garlic powder

Remove skin from chicken and place in baking dish, meat side up. Baste the chicken with sauce, leaving some for basting while baking. Bake at 350°. Baste every 15 minutes for 1 hour until chicken is cooked through.

O'Henry Bars

These are SUPER fast and supper yummy! You can make them pretty if you want, but they taste the same no matter how they look!

1 cup corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup Peanut Butter
3 Cup Rice Crispies
1/2 bag Butterscotch Chips
1/2 bag Chocolate Chips (I like Milk Chocolate)
Optional: Peanuts

Bring the corn syrup and sugar to a boil. Remove from heat and add the peanut butter, rice crispies, and peanuts (if wanted). Spread on the bottom of a lightly greased 9x13 pan. Heat the butterscotch and chocolate chips (microwave or stove) and spread on top of the previous mixture in the pan. Let it sit for an hour to set. Enjoy!
