Reviews forApplesauce Barbecue Chicken
"My family loved this. The only adjustments I made was to use fresh homemade chunky applesauce and homemade barbecue sauce. I'm a diabetic, so the carbs and sodium where way too high, to use all that pre-package stuff. Excellent recipe!"
"Awesome flavour! A definite make again."
"For as simple as it is, it packs a lot of flavor. I will be making this over and over again for my man."
"Very tasty. Had this with a Caesar salad!!!"
"This is one of my family's favorite recipes. I love it because it comes together quickly and that you can change it up depending on your family. I typically use a barbeque sauce with a little more spice to it and I stead of chunky applesauce, I use whatever I have in the house. Either way, it's turned out well every time I've made it and both kids and adults have enjoyed it. Definitely in my rotation."
"Absolutely delicious!!! So easy to make!"
