Hello, former Knapp's line cook here, 97-99. Tasty recipe, pretty close in flavor as I remember. Just wanted to point out that the way we did it was to grill the chicken plain, And then immediatley marinate in the sauce(kept at around 160F in a steam bath) for anywhere from 1 to 3 hours. 2 hours is just right. Thought Id share, Peace!
