MY REVIEW

Made slow baked chicken breasts using this sauce.

My husband said this was his favorite of anything I have EVER made with chicken. Not sure whether to take this as a compliment or an insult to the last 20 years my scratch cooking!

Seriously, this is very very good bbq sauce. I just got done making a double batch for the freezer. Would be great on pork chops, elk steaks or duck too.

Purchased the Taste of Home Grill It cookbook and this was one of the recipes I've tried. Made a double batch with fresh bing cherries. The only change made was adding a little kick of heat with an Italian red pepper. EXCELLENT on BBQ whole chicken breast. Will be making an another double batch and canning for future use.
