This was super good, although I tweaked it a bit. I halved it, used a fresh large garlic clove instead of powder, and added some cumin, chili powder and salt. I also didn't use any molasses and it was plenty sweet. I blended it all together in a blender, put it in a crock pot and cooked thawed chicken thighs in it on high for about 5 hours. The family raved about it, including my daughter who doesn't like BBQ. Easy and great!
