In a Fleet Week Cook-off extravaganza, U.S. Marines cooks faced off against cooks from the U.S. Navy on Good Morning America. Try the oven-baked Barbecued Chicken recipe from the U.S. Marines.


  • 3 1/2 pounds chicken (broiler fryer), cut up into 8 portions.
  • 4 ounce bottle chili sauce
  • 1 16-ounce bottle tomato catsup
  • 4 ounces cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 5 ounces prepared mustard
  • 2 tsp. cayenne
  • 2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    Place the chicken on a shallow baking pan with space between the pieces. Combine all the remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Stir with a wire whisk until completely smooth.

    Reserve half of the sauce for dipping. Spoon the sauce over the chicken; reserve 1/4 cup to spread over the chicken for the last 10 minutes of cooking. Bake in the oven until nicely browned and cooked through, 50 minutes to one hour.

    Place on a serving platter and serve the sauce along with the chicken.
