    Love the flavor I will definitely make it again  -  02 Oct 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Delicious! I made this with drumettes, and followed the recipe without changing anything else. Great with lettuce wraps!  -  29 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I had 6 lbs of chickens so I had to adjust the quantities of the ingredients. I reduced the amount of butter in the sauce but added a dollop of BBQ sauce and extra Sriracha. I also pulled the chicken out at about the 35-40 minute mark, coated it and finished the last 10 minutes in the oven. I gave everything a final coating and served it to a hungry family. FYI: this chicken tastes just as good as leftovers!  -  22 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
