      I used chicken legs and ended up shredding them and combining them with the sauce, which worked out really well. While I plan on repeating the recipe the same way if you do not plan on shreeding your chicken I would suggest using skinless chicken breasts.

      Loved this too... I used a bag of frozen chicken breasts. I took them out to defrost in the fridge the day before. This was really, really, tasty. I used a dark mexican ale and served this with steamed brown rice and Semi-Homemade Borracho Beans. DH loved it as well. Thanks !

      I'm not ordinarily a Sandra Lee fan but a friend made this for a meal for our visit over the Holidays. Very tasty and I love how easy the recipe is. We use Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce and most often I have a Yeungling Lager in the house. I'll probably use this for tailgating in the fall.
