I'm sorry, my family thought this recipe was terrible and I threw away all of the leftover chicken. It was easy but had no flavor.



Only a "kid" would love it. The only similarity to barbecue chicken is the color. "Families in Texas love it." Well, we here in Pennsylvania love the real taste of barbecue, not imitation flavor. Would not serve to guests.



This recipe needs to be tweaked. I use this recipe for a catering , and everyone loves it. The best way to make this is one can of warm coke, heinz catsup, start with equal amounts then to taste, simmer for about a half and hour and stir so it won't burn. Let it sit in the frig overnight and it will thicken it up. By putting it in the frig the catsup and coke mesh really well, sometimes I add mushrooms and onions, it is excellent. It is great with Patty LaBelles macaroni and cheese. Beware of calories great, comfort food. :-)
