This recipe is going into the regular rotations at our. It was fast and tasty and the chicken stayed moist, which are my top three requirements for a chicken dish. For me, I thought it was a bit bland so next time I'll double the garlic powder and maybe add a dash of hot sauce or balsamic to kick up the flavor.

My family gets excited when I make this and it's so easy. I have frozen sauce that was left over and used it for another time and it worked out great.

I have been making this sense I found it in a Taste of Home Magazine years ago.

This is a recipe my big sister used to make, it was so fun to make it again! Yum. I added a bit of liquid smoke and used less ketchup in the sauce.

This is one of our regular rotation recipes. It is quick and easy to make, and chicken comes out very tender and moist. You can easily make 6-8 chicken breasts with this recipe since it makes so much sauce.

Coming from a family that enjoys zesty, flavorful food, this was a nice surprise. I used one of the more spicer ketchups which made for a deeper flavor. I will definitely make this again!

My boyfriend and I wanted to cook something for dinner instead of eating out. He wanted chicken and I wanted something easy so we searched and came across this. It was amazing. The flavor was spectacular, and it was easy and fun to cook! I will definitely make this again for the rest of my family.

My picky kids and picky husband all loved it. I made plenty of sauce to go over rice, too. Just be sure not to over-simmer the chicken, or it will toughen up. Very good recipe!

It wasn't bad, it wasn't very good. It honestly was pretty bland. It tasted basically like chicken with catsup on it. I can understand why children would like it, but it's very boring...
