Reviews for Spicy Grilled Barbecue Chicken
"Great tasting sauce! I used this with boneless chicken breasts on the grill, and they came out great! There was plenty of sauce so I had some leftover to use for something else later."
"This is the BEST barbecue sauce I've ever tasted! I use it for all my barbecue meals! I made the chicken in the oven for this recipe and turned out to die for! Even my pickiest eater couldn't get enough of this awesome chicken. Keep this recipe handy!"
"This recipe was delicious, but I left the sugar out completely and used 1/2 cup of honey instead. Perfect combination for my family's tastebuds!"
"I followed the recipe but did not have the dry mustard so I used what was on hand and the family loved it!Absolutely great"
