1/3 cup water
2 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp mustard
salt and pepper
3 lb broiler, cut up

In a large skillet, brown chicken in the oil. Place the brown chicken in a baking dish. Add the onion and celery to the chicken drippings in pan; cook until tender. Add the catsup, water, lemon juice, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper to taste. Simmer over low heat for 15 minutes. Skim off any excess fat.
