"Oh my goodness ...it was the best . Wanted to fix something different that I could make looking nice on the plate for my hard working babe. He loved it and all I heard was mmmmm,this gd mmmmm lol. Fixed it with rice and fresh veggies . All I changed was I used hickory BBQ sause instead normal . Just like it sweet ;)"
"Just wife & I, so I used 2 boneless/skinless half chicken breasts. Used 1 tbls each of butter and oil. The rest of the recipe I followed exactly...we like a lot of sauce. All my wife could say (while eating) was this is really good! We served over brown rice. This is a keeper!"
"This is a great recipe!! My family loved it.Here are a few things I differently that might help:-Add 2 tablespoons of Olive oil to the butter to keep from burning the butter-Line the pan with foil. This sauce is sticky and covering the chicken makes it very tender!!I think the next time I will put a cup of rice under the chicken then bake. I will comment on how it turns out.Hope my tips help!!"
