I doubled the recipe and baked my chicken pieces in it browning the chicken pieces first, I added in 1 tablespoon chili powder and some cayenne pepper, for a sweeter sauce add in more brown sugar to taste, if you like a thick sauce then mix in a little water mixed with cornstarch towards then end of cooking then simmer for a couple minutes to thicken.

I added a bit more rootbeer and more brown sugar it was a bit to ketchupy for us. But then I used my homemade ketchup LOL so that changes it a bit. I browned my chicken and then pour the sauce all over and baked YUM. Made for Newest Zaar Tag
