"I cheated and used rotisserie chicken since I had some to use up. I am always on the lookout to make my own BBQ sauce; I had to pour KC BBQ sauce into the homemade sauce so my family would eat it. They're spoiled and it has to taste like KC BBQ. I will say that this is an easy recipe and others might love it."
