      This sauce rocked! I had to make another batch to satisfy the crowd. I made as directed using Heinz Chili Sauce and Tobasco as the hot pepper sauce. I found the longer this sauce sits the better it gets. Thanks for the recipe KC!

      This really hit the spot tonight. The sauce was addictive and the chicken was finger-lickin' gooood. Wouldn't change a thing. I recommend serving extra sauce for dipping.
