A not-too-sweet, not-too-tangy barbecue sauce that everyone loves. Finishes in almost a glaze and would also be great on pork chops or ribs.

Since it's freezing outside I decided not to grill but baked the chicken instead. I just put the chicken pieces in a baking dish and covered them with sauce. I also added one tablespoon of prepared mustard to the sauce as well. I won't be going back to the bottled stuff again this sauce was delicious. Read More

I doubled this recipe to feed four. To the sauce I did add a squirt dijon mustard and a touch of Liquid Smoke. This was a quick and easy chicken recipe. Read More

Love to grill but had no time. Doubled the sauce recipe and put four frozen chicken breasts in crock pot dumped the sauce on top - slow cooked about eight hours. House smelled so good when we got home. Serve with a bagged green salad and microwave baked potatoes with a little extra sauce and some shredded cheese on top. Delicious! Felt like someone had been home cooking dinner for us! Read More

Wonderful recipe - I doubled it and used chili sauce instead of ketchup and put the chicken in the sauce to marinate all day reserving some for basting. We did the whole thing on the grill and it was very good. Read More

I made this for holiday dinner a few weeks ago. I didn't have a grill so I baked it first covered then uncovered to get a nice color. It got very good feedback. Read More

This chicken was a hit at our dinner party! I used a whole cut up chicken instead of chicken breasts and it turned out wonderful! I increased the sauce 4X since we like extra sauce on the side. This is a definite keeper! Everyone wanted the recipe! Read More

This is a great recipe. I got quite a few compliments on this one. I doubled the recipe and it was enough marinade and brushing sauce for 4 medium sized chicken breasts. I stuck to the recipe as written except for one extra ingredient. I mixed in a Tablespoon of Louisiana hot sauce to give it a little kick. It actually didn t taste all that hot to me even after adding the hot sauce but it added just enough heat to offset the sweetness of the sauce. I used a red onion which gave the sauce a bolder flavor. Next time I ll add a little cayenne pepper because I like spiciness but the recipe is fine the way it is. After the sauce cooled I marinated the chicken for about 2 hours then put the chicken breasts on a hot lightly oiled grill and brushed the rest of the sauce on them as they cooked. Delicious.
