    internetnut's Note:

    My family loved this chicken sauce. I made some changes to the recipe for my families taste. I added 3 tablespoons poultry seasoning and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. I used skinless, boneless chicken that was grilled on low till cooked. I had to mop this on as the seasonings would not go through the spray bottle nozzle. My future hubby loves when I marinade the chicken in the sauce over night. I put everything in a bag and pop it in the refrigerator until ready to use. Please note this sauce will have a very strong vinegar smell when being cooked to the boil. I recommend cooking it outside if at all possible. I got the recipe from Copy Kat chat. If you have ever tasted the local Fire Department's grilled chicken, here is the spray they use. You can use any cut of chicken you choose, but most Fire Departments use either halves or quarters.

      Grill chicken over direct heat, turning and basting often. Applying the mop is easy with a spray bottle.

      Me and the kids liked but husband did not, but he doesn't like the taste of vinegar. It did have a mild vinegar taste to it, but it seemed like it needed something more, like a little sweetness or seasoning to go with it. We always use the old standby of using italian dressing as a mop/marinade for chicken.

      This is a very good mop. It's mild in flavor and produces moist chicken. I used a boneless chicken breast so probably didn't mop as much as I would have with bone-in chicken. For this reason, I marinated the chicken in some of the sauce for a few hours before cooking.
