For those cold or rainy days when you can't go out and grill, this is a great tasting barbecue chicken that has loads of flavor. Great served with baked potatoes or even with buttered noodles, a nice green vegetable and a salad. from Mr. Food

It wasn't cold and rainy, and we could have gone outside, but it was too hot. So.....did this. I am glad too, because this was terrific! I used ground New Mexico chile powder, and since it doesn't have all the other spices in it, I added another clove of garlic. I used the chicken breasts, like you did. This was sooo good. Thank you Babs for sharing this keeper.

The BBQ sauce in this recipe would win a BBQ contest it is so good. We have lots of BBQ joints in Texas, but I haven't tasted anything to compare with this recipe. Barb in Texas
