    The sauce was delicious! I used homemade apple butter and a salsa verde. Took about 20 minutes total for the chicken to be completely done. I also made mashed potatoes with this and put some of the sauce that came off the chicken on good! This is a keeper.Update: I made this again this evening and instead of apple butter I used homemade peach butter. Still tasted delicious! I found that my chicken needed to cook a bit longer but that might have been because of thicker cuts. I also only did 1/2 the amount of salt it suggests. I also put in a bit more liquid smoke than called for because we like that smokey flavor. I felt like the chicken itself could have used more flavor though, so I might try to marinade it a little beforehand with something. Either way, still a keeper!
