    Good, but I prefer a 'sauce' that sticks to the meat and not a liquid. Maybe I will try tomato paste next time and add a bit of garlic. - 4/23/09

    I used boneless chicken breasts without the skin. The sauce added a nice bbq flavor and kept the meat moist. Even Texas bbqing husband gave this one a thumbs up. - 5/10/09

    I made this for supper tonight and it was very good. I used boneless, skinless chicken breast and used Dr. Pepper instead of chicken broth. My husband and I both liked it. I like the fact it wasn't a sauce but more of a marinade. - 5/18/09

    This was good but I used chicken wings (which came out GREAT) and chicken tenderloins (which came out dry). I am one who likes the thick bbq sauce but this was good too. - 4/6/09

    This was delicious and moist. The whole family enjoyed although my daugher found it a little too spicy for her liking. My son doesn't care for real bbq sauce that sticks to the meat, so this thin liquid was perfect to season the meat, yet leave the chicken with no sticky sauce. - 4/6/09

    Loved it! I left out the pepper flakes ( I was out) so I used paprika instead. I got my chicken on sale and only used thighs. Nice change from breast meat. - 3/1/09

    Made this recipe last night. Good flavor, easy to make. However, the barbeque part was disappointing as there was no true "sauce" to it, only liquid. I think i will try it next time with half the pepper flakes and maybe a can of tomatoe paste like some have suggested. - 2/23/09

    YUMMMMM-MY!!! I didn't add the red pepper flakes (too hot for the kids). I served with a side of asparagus. Loved it! It's a keeper. - 2/19/09

    I've made this several times with skinless, boneless thighs and it's very good! I cut back on the red pepper flakes for the kids though. Tasty! Plus I bakes potatoes or sweet potatoes in the oven with them and all you need is a nice salad and you have dinner. - 2/19/09

    Everyone in my family liked it. We'll probably cut down a little on the red peppers for the kids, but otherwise it was very good. - 10/4/08

    I left out the red pepper flakes...it needed something. Maybe the catsup that someone else added would be a good addition. I will try it again with catsup and see. Maybe add some bell peppers along with the onions also. - 8/28/08
