We really enjoyed the spice in this sauce! This made for a yummy bbq chicken dinner last night. After broiling, it looked like my chicken was almost done so I only continued to cook them, covered, for another 15 min. instead of the 30 min. Made for Spring PAC.

I modified slightly to adapt for ingredients in my pantry. We're on a strict budget, so I made do with what was on hand. In place of tomato sauce I extra spaghetti sauce I had frozen. I used clear Karo syrup for honey, pancake syrup for molasses. Had everything else. I sliced the chicken breasts into thin cutlets, marinated overnight in the fridge, then seared in the skillet. Then I followed instructions to heat in oven for 30 minutes. The entire family oved them!
