Delicious, easy to make, had raves from all family members
Delicious. The sauce tastes very good. It is an easy and a quick recipe. I cooked it with bonesless and skinless chicken when we had my in laws here. Everyone from my picky toddler to in laws love it.
This is the second time I've made this. It's great as is. I used less chicken so I had left over sauce. I used the sauce later in the week to make BBQ shrimp. I sautéed onions, and added it to sauce and shrimp.
I followed the recipe exactly as written and it tasted delicious! My husband, not normally a huge fan of chicken, ate 4 pieces. I would make the sauce for pork too. A good dinner to just set in the oven and have time to do something else while it cooks.
I used boneless skinless thighs and it turned out great!
