Reviews for Spicy Barbecued Chicken
"Didn't change anything. Really liked this. We made it over Labor Day and it was great!!! We didn't find it to spicy at all, even my 4 and 8 year old loved it."
"flavor is great! I think it would really be good on wings."
"We had this delicious chicken tonight and it was delicious. I think next time I may cut back on the cayenne but it was not overly spicy for us. It was very easy to prepare and grill. We will be having this again. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor."
"Delicious! I did make a few changes since my husband doesn't like spicy foods. I used 1/8 t of cayenne in the sauce, and in the rub, I only used 1 t of chili powder and omitted the cayenne. I also baked the chicken in the oven at 400 for 25 mins. I baked it without sauce the first 10 mins, then basted the chicken with sauce and baked it the rest if the way."
"Very spicy, will cut down on the spice next time."
"Delicious and very spicy!"
"Very good on chicken, and I'm going to try it on pork!"
"I made this some time ago and I really liked it, as did the family. It's really low sodium. I did use a little less cayenne pepper and chili powder but only because of our tastes."
"The stars didn't come up to use. It's a five. And thank you, thank you for giving the $ Savings thingy. I use that!!!"
"Very tasty! The sauce was easy to make, and I even substituted a spicy BBQ Sauce for the chili sauce and it turned out great! I might cut back a little bit on the Cayenne Pepper as it was just a touch too spicy. However, it was delicious and I will definitely be making it again!"
"We had this for dinner last night and WOW was this a hit! The chicken had great flavor with just enough heat to suit my family. If you don't like your food to have a bite I would recommend cutting back on the cayenne pepper. Simple to prepare this one is definitely a keeper!"
"The sauce took just a little bit of time but it REALLY WAS WORTH IT! We cooked it for the first time when we had company (which is a risky move on a new dish) EVERYONE loved it.We served it with corn, the chicken was excellent."
