This chicken is as good as it is easy. It is a real family favorite even in Texas.

This recipe needs to be tweaked. I use this recipe for a catering and everyone loves it. The best way to make this is one can of warm coke heinz catsup start with equal amounts then to taste simmer for about a half and hour and stir so it won't burn. Let it sit in the frig overnight and it will thicken it up. By putting it in the frig the catsup and coke mesh really well sometimes I add mushrooms and onions it is excellent. It is great with Patty LaBelles macaroni and cheese. Beware of calories great comfort food.:-) Read More

I'm sorry my family thought this recipe was terrible and I threw away all of the leftover chicken. It was easy but had no flavor. Read More

Only a "kid" would love it. The only similarity to barbecue chicken is the color. "Families in Texas love it." Well we here in Pennsylvania love the real taste of barbecue not imitation flavor. Would not serve to guests. Read More

I do not recomend this recipe. It tastes like over sweetened Ketchup! We BBQ alot and this does not resemble BBQ chicken at all. Read More

This recipe turned out surprisingly well. The sauce is not exactly a BBQ type it's more of a tomatoey type of taste but it's pretty good nevertheless. My husband absolutely loved it. I was a little less enthusiastic but I still found it to be worthwhile - and definitely an easy meal to make. Will serve it again. Read More

I've tried this recipe three times. The first time I used diet Pepsi and ketchup. It came out grossly sweet and I threw it away. A friend told me to be sure to use Diet Coke so the second time I did. It was very blah; tasted like sweet ketchup to me but I thought it could have potential. So the third time I tried to liven it up with 2 cloves garlic 1/2 a minced onion 1/2 a minced green pepper white pepper and a dash of worstershire sauce. The additions actually made it worse. I'm sorry but this absolutely didn't work for me. Read More

Embarassingly embarassing you mean. This recipe was awful. We ended up eating a couple bites and then ordering out for pizza. Read More

This was a very very easy recipe -- and while it was a bit sweet the kids certainly enjoyed it. If you like your BBQ sweet rather than tangy try it. I also found there wasn't a lot of heartburn complaints after my family ate this chicken. Read More
