    This HAS to be good!! This was Pres. Eisenhower's favorite BBQ chicken dish. It was published in our newspaper in 1958, and then again not so long ago. I have some chicken in the freezer just waiting for some BBQ sauce!!!

      I love this barbecued chicken. I'd lost the recipe, and am so glad I found it. We make it in a skillet, with boneless chicken cut up bite sized, and serve it over rice. My brother calls it "orange chicken", because of the color. Thanks for posting!

      The sauce is basically what my homemade BBQ sauce is made out of so I was sure we'd like the flavor. The chicken was very moist & tender as well. My family enjoyed it. So much that I nearly had nothing to photograph. Thanks for posting, Skinny! Made for Election Eats tag game.

      This sounds so good skinny, I can't wait to try it!!! All the ingredients sound perfect and the slower cooking process. I will be making it this week for sure! Thank you much! Love, Becky
