This recipe is easy to make and delicious. I think I would cut the vinegar down to 1/4 cup, as I could taste the vinegar coming thru. Otherwise, we really enjoyed it.

I tried this recipe back in 1994 when one of the 1st TOH cookbooks came out. It is my go to time and time again. My family loves the flavor and I use legs and thighs. Served with garlic mashed potatoes, veggie or salad and hot cornbread!

I don't know... It didn't exactly excite us...I probably won't make it again.. It wasn't a 5 star in my books... try Taste of homes seafood lasagna... now that is a 5 star!

This is the first barbecued chicken I have fixed in TOH and one of the best! The flavors come together so nicely! We love this chicken!

very good and easy. I also just used breasts and baked for an hour with perfectly done chicken as the outcome. will definitely make again.

Who needs bottled barbecue sauce with this easy to make and tasty recipe? I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts, but didn't brown them. I put them in a pan, poured the sauce over them and baked it at 350 for 1 hour.

I made this for dinner last night and was not disappointed! Everyone in the family enjoyed it. The sauce is the perfect mix of tangy and sweet, and the chicken was perfectly tender after the 45 minutes. There was a breast leftover, and I thinly sliced it and coated it with leftover sauce for an amazing chicken sandwich for lunch today! This will definitely become part of the regular rotation.
