When Mom makes chicken, this is the way we like it prepared. It's juicy, has great barbecue flavor and makes a big batch, so it's perfect for a summer picnic and family reunions. -Brenda Beachy Belvidere, Tennessee

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 8, 2013

This chicken marinade is the best. It's like having the barbecue sauce infused into the meat. It's great for a large crowd and very kid friendly. I've made this for several cookouts and always to rave reviews. You won't be disappointed!

I made only half of this recipe and it turned out great. The marinade gives the chicken a great flavor when it is first cooked, but when I reheated the leftovers it helped to brush it with a little barbecue sauce.

I used this recipe for some legs and wings I took camping with me. It kept in the cooler very well, and was very tasty!!

Very tasty marinade. We have made this twice with excellent results (although we did make only 1/4 of the recipe for the two of us).
