"Very yummy! My family looked at me like I was crazy when I started dumping fruit into a saucepan and declared that I was making BBQ sauce. They changed their tune when they tasted it! The chicken was a cinch to put together and turned out nicely crisp and tender at the same time. I used Rice Chex instead of Rice Krispies simply because that's what I had on hand. I liked the chicken recipe so well that I used it again for Buffalo Chicken Tenders adding a hot sauce while baking. A great recipe that I will be using over and over again. Made for Fall 2008 PAC."
"I made the BBQ sauce so my rating is for the sauce only. I had some cooked pork ribs in the freezer and after reducing the sauce brushed on your Berrycherry BBQ Sauce. I then basted them several times while cooking and had extra sauce to serve on the side. The fruity flavors do come thru and mixed well with the other flavors & the pork. I thought it was a creative use of the fruit & jam on the RSC ingredient list!"
"Mmmm! The BBQ sauce by itself is good, the chicken by itself is good, but the two together was "lick-the-plate clean" good!! I made the full batch of sauce but only half the chicken and actually 1/4 of the breading amounts was plenty for 1# of chicken. The three egg whites were also unnecessary - one egg would be plenty for the full amount of chicken. I used frozen cherries and fresh blueberries for the sauce. The baking time and temperature was perfect to yield juicy, crispy chicken. I'll definitely be making this one again! Thanks and good luck in the contest!"
"Wow! This was really surprisingly delicious! I didn't know if my family and I would like the barbecue sauce but we all did! It was not overly sweet for us and it had a nice little tang to it. I used fresh cherries and blueberries since they are in season right now. The breading was perfectly crisp and tasty. I baked mine for about 25 minutes and they were done just right. I think this is a very creative use of ingredients with delicious results. Good luck in the contest!"
