    DDW's Note:

    The BBQ sauce on this juicy grilled chicken is out-of-this world! We "wow" people with this recipe every summer during outdoor entertaining. I always double the sauce recipe to have extra on the side for dipping. The original recipe calls for 2 small boiler chickens quartered but we prefer using bone-in, skin on chicken breasts. Slow cooking on the grill gives it the best flavor. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do - it's a favorite at this house.

      We thought this sauce was indeed great. I couldn't grill the chicken so I pour the sauce over and baked slowly at 300 degrees for about 1.5 hours. The sauce is nice because it's actually thick enough to stick to the chicken. I added the full amount of celery seed but I would reduce that because it was a little stronger flavor than we wanted. Overall, a fantastic chicken recipe and once we'll make again for sure.

      The name says it all. I made this over Memorial day weekend; it really IS that good... the sauce is super simple, but don't let that fool you, it's got PLENTY to make your taste buds dance. I did brine the chicken first (soaked in salt water for 30-45 minutes; IMO this helps keep the chicken juicy during the long grilling process). This recipe just went into the secret "things to impress my friends" with notebook. I'll be making this one again; really soon.

      this is terrific! Sauce is amazing and definitely agree you should make extra as it is great for dipping and wonderful on baked beans!! I did not use grill as it was too hot outside so I put chicken under broiler and then swathed in bbq sauce and baked. Covered with foil when browned. This will be a family summer favorite!!
