I still have the card for this recipe that a friend gave me 25 years ago—the stains on it attest to its frequent use! The chicken turns out juicy and tender, and the sauce makes a tasty gravy.

"This was a very good BBQ chicken recipe. I did make a couple revisions but don't think it affected the outcome of the recipe. I used all the ingredients but after reading the reviews that the sauce was watery I did add 1 T. honey. I didn't fry the chicken pieces but rather put dried off pieces in oven at 375* convection for 30 minutes. Also because of the watery reviews I drained off the juices before pouring on the sauce. I didn't cover and then baked for 30 more minutes until deeply browned. It was wonderful. We used the sauce to put on rice."

"The sauce is thin but perhaps that's why the chicken is so moist :) We loved the flavor. I left out the curry (not a fan) and increased the chili powder"

"This had more taste as leftovers. The sauce was very watery so maybe adding a little flour to it would thicken it up and even leaving the chicken in the sauce over night and then cook it the next day. I also used drumsticks."

"This was AMAZING! I am definitely going to make this again. Scrumptious flavor and ended up moist and tender. Wow!!! I didn't have curry so I left that out."

"If I use the the 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish what is the 8-in square baking dish for?"

"I used boneless/skinless chicken thighs; it was really good. When I made the BBQ sauce I mixed all the ingredients into the ketchup bottle (there wasn't much ketchup left in it). I ended up not using the entire BBQ mixture because I only made a few pieces of chicken; so now when I want to use the BBQ sauce again I have the remaining sauce in the old ketchup bottle. I will definitely make this again."

"Just LOVE this, the sauce is watery not thick but we love the taste! I bake for about an hour covered then uncover and baste chicken with sauce for about another 1/2 hours. Yummy!"
