This recipe appeared in the Toronto Star many years ago as a result of a contest to create a sauce similar to Swiss Chalet's barbecue sauce. Home economist Kay Spicer created the winning recipe. Anne's note: Swiss Chalet is a chain of Canadian chicken restaurants. This sauce is brushed on the chicken before cooking and served at the table in small containers to dip the chicken pieces in. My note: This comes together quickly if you have all of your ingredients ready and at-hand. Divide the sauce...use at least 1 cup for basting (rotisserie method is best) and the rest for dipping. This is as close the real thing as you can get. Saving to 'Zaar for safe-keeping. Enjoy!
