    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.

      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.

      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.

      This truly is a great recipe. Not to sweet or overbaring. I made it exactly as written and my fussy eaters loved it. I used 7 half boneless chicken breasts and had plenty sauce to dip with. I made the sauce first and then pounded the breasts to about an inch thick. Seared the breasts on each side then coated the top side with sauce grilled for 5 mins, turned and coated the second side and grilled for 5 mins. Perfection!!!! I kept the remaining breast in the refrig and made a great salad the next day with - romaine lettuce bagged mix, yellow sweet bell peppers, red seedless grapes and cubed cold chicken. We don't use salad dressing on any of our salads as we like the taste of the salad alone. I light asian dressing would be good or maybe a lite balsamic vingarette.
