This barbecue sauce tastes exactly like the famous New York State Finger Lakes sauce for chicken that is enjoyed all over Central New York in the summer. Because it uses fat-free mayonnaise instead of the usual oil and egg, the sauce adheres to the chicken better and the finished product is more moist.

Tasty and very moist. The vinegar adds a nice tang to the chicken. I do think it needed a bit more seasoning to it so next time I'll add a little red pepper or something. Read More

Being that I have lived in the Finger Lakes region of NY for 29 years (minus one year in Savannah GA) I really WANTED to like this. HOWEVER it tastes NOTHING like the "famous bbq sauce" that the Finger Lakes is known for. This is missing many spices and came across very very bland. My family and I were very disappointed.

Tastes almost just like spiedies but so much easier. Cut the chicken into pieces and wrap in buttered Italian bread for a great taste! Read More
