Wow, what a yummy BBQ chicken recipe. I, like yooper, have been looking for a non-tomato based BBQ sauce. This was fabulous. The chicken was tender and juicy. The sauce was spicy and tangy. Thanks Nurse Di.

Wow! Great chicken! I added a touch of garlic powder. I've been searching for recipes for barbecued chicken without the traditional tomato barbecue sauce. Thanks Nurse Di! I think the next time I make this I'll experiment and try it on the grill using the sauce for basting. This is a wonderful recipe!

I was really pleased with this recipe. A good simple recipe with ingredients that I keep on hand. My kids ate it, too.
