A school-lunch chicken recipe contest produced this one. The winner adapted it from an old family recipe.

30 chicken breast halves

15 chicken drumsticks

15 chicken thighs

1/2 pound butter or margarine

1/2 cup flour

3/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon dry mustard

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1 quart orange juice

2 tablespoons salt or to taste

Preheat oven to 350oF. Place chicken in single layer, skin side up, in 2 to 3 large baking pans. Keep breast halves in a separate pan as they will cook more quickly than the legs and thighs. In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in flour, sugar, spices, orange juice and salt and cook, stirring constantly until thickened. Pour sauce over chicken. Bake, uncovered, for 45 to 60 minutes or until cooked through. Check breast meat for doneness after 45 minutes.
