"I'm sure this is delicious, but I'm really confused as to why it was shown in a line-up of recipes listed as "5-ingredient chicken recipes"! There are NOT 5 ingredients, but 8!"

"These were so good and easy. Only had hot chili sauce and WOW they had a lot of heat. Next time I will use mild chili sauce."

"Mmm - I love chili sauce and chicken, and this recipe was great! I used garlic powder instead of whole garlic and I baked it around 45 minutes."
