MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 13, 2015

"I made this exactly as given and found there was too much oil. I didn't care for the flavor of the sauce but son did like. Just because it's not my to my liking doesn't mean others won't like it. Enjoy!"

"This chicken was good, just not outstanding. I thought it tasted more like sweet and sour chicken than BBQ."

"My kids love this and they generally do not like chicken. My husband actually requested that I make it again for the kids which is the first sign of him remotely planning a meal since we were married 20 years ago!"

"Love this recipe. I've found it works well with any type of chicken. I always use less brown sugar & add some cayenne pepper for some heat. This dish goes great with the Lemon Rice from this site also."
