GREAT flavor, marinated overnight. Used drumsticks & boneless chicken breasts. Served with Black Bean Salsa. Easy & delicious!!

Really tasty. I would have liked this a bit sweeter so next time I'll incease the brown sugar a bit. I grilled this on my stovetop grill pan. Leftovers will be great on a salad

This barbecue sauce is amazing!!! Delicious!! REMEMBER: if you are using chicken breasts, especially thinner ones, ADJUST THE COOKING TIME! First time I made these I didn't, and the meat came out incredibly dry and tough. After learning that lesson, I've been able to make the dish correctly and it's delicious!

I love this recipe. It is fabulous as written and I've used it often. It's also adaptable to variations: I've added Worcestershire, Chinese 5-spice, cayenne and/or chipotle for heat and smoke, balsamic vinegar for a little bite and sherry when I didn't have sake. It's delicious and flexible and best of all, it makes me look like a grill master which I am not!

Very good. Did not marinate chicken, nor did I grill it. Put sauce on chicken thighs, and put them in the oven. Will definitely make this again. Served with green beans and sweet potatoes.

This is a very easy recipe to make. Very tasty. My family loved it. I've made it with chicken breasts instead of legs and thighs and it was still good. Will definitely make this again.

Delicious. Next time, we'll try it on the grill. Would make a great wing sauce.

The title of this recipe confused me -- barbeque in the title but the chicken is baked. Don't do it -- definitely barbeque if you can. The grilling makes a huge difference. We used chicken thighs instead of leg quarters, and marinated overnight. Next time -- and there will definitely be a next time -- we'll double the sauce. DH basted the chicken with all the sauce instead of cooking it on the stove. A wonderful idea! Tasted out of this world. But we needed more sauce. Might try this with chicken breasts, but cooking might be a little tricky.

I didn't have hoisin sauce, so I just doubled the barbecue recipe. I used chicken breasts instead, marinated for 8 hours, and grilled them. The chicken was so moist and flavorful that there was no need for any extra sauce!

I made as directed, but have to agree with the other reviewers that the marinade wasn't necessary -- it didn't add anything. Will defiitely make again,, though I'll add more garlic.

This is a delicious marinade and sauce. My only change was time and temp of cooking, as I prefer chicken cooked for a shorter time at a higher temperature. It took 35 minutes at 425 degrees, and after 10 minutes I added diced potatoes, red bells, and yellow squash tossed in a bit of olive oil and garlic salt. That with a sliced tomato made a great dinner.
