The sauce is delicious! The brown sugar, lime and ginger provides nice flavor to grilled chicken. Made exactly as written. Served with sweet potato fries for a Caribbean themed dinner. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

This sauce for grilled chicken is delightful. You can really taste all the components of the sauce. I really loved the sweet, tangy and spicy flavors. I didn't have Frank's red hot sauce so I used Sriracha hot chili sauce. I halved the recipe, but used the full amount of hot sauce. It gave the sauce a nice kick without being too spicy. I will be making this recipe often. Thanks, again, V! :) Made for PAC Fall, 2009.

Deliciously sweet! I used this sauce over a chicken stirfry with broccoli, green peppers, mushrooms and onions, served with some rice. I also substituted the hot sauce for some chopped hot bell pepper. I'll definately make this again!
