This has been a favorite TOH recipe since it was first published. My go to for oven bbq chicken. I cut back on the vinegar taste for my family but the sauce is excellent.

Made this for dinner and it was determined to be a keeper for the recipe box! I will definitely make this again!

This is so good! I used 8 chix thighs and doubled the sauce, using one whole chopped onion...which made too much sauce. Next time, I will make 1-1/2 the sauce recipe and use a small onion. (you just can't use too much onion!) I added some hot sauce and liquid smoke. It baked to 170 degrees in 35 min. After baking, I thickened the sauce somewhat with cornstarch to a gravy like consistency. Was wonderful with rice and fresh corn. fhquilting

Such a delicious and excellent recipe. I love the sauce I have also used it on other meats and fish, it's become one of my favorites. I also used chicken thighs in place of breasts. Thx Marge it's a keeper!

We had this perfectly named chicken tonight as it was very delicious. The sauce makes this chicken. It was just tangy enough yet not too sweet. A perfect blend of flavors.I halved the recipe for the two of us but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. This is definitely a five-star recipe and I’d give it a few more stars if I could. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor.
