Lubie, this recipe is one of the best recipes I have made on zaar (and I have made many, LOL). The recipe was easy to follow and produced the best BBQ chicken I have ever eaten. I only made one change to the recipe. I didn't cook the onions in water. Instead, I placed it in the skillet with chicken so that the flavor from the onion would infuse more in the chicken. This is a recipe that you can make on the nights you don't have a lot of time to cook or just don't feel up to cooking. Next tme, I will make it in the crockpot and cook it for 4-6 hours on low. Thanks so much for this recipe.

This was a great recipe! Really simple and my family loved it!!! By far the best BBQ chicken I've ever had.The only changes I would make is omitting the oil (It's not necessary and makes the chicken to oily) and reduce the salt (It's too much for my taste). Otherwise, this was amazing! I'll be making this again. :)

What an excellent sauce! I cut out the oil (was not needed) used my own bbq sauce that I had made up, half Dijon mustard, half hot mustard, no salt and lots of pepper. I served this over baby back ribs that I had slow cooked in the oven and finished over the bbq. As I was only serving 4 people, there was enough sauce that I cut the recipe in half and will freeze the rest for another time. Kudos on a great find!!!
