Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

In small bowl, whisk together ketchup, apple cider vinegar, onion, garlic, chili powder and hot pepper sauce.

Place chicken breasts in glass baking dish. Pour sauce over chicken, turning to coat all sides. Turn chicken skin-side up. Place in oven and bake 1 hour. Set aside until cool enough to handle.
