Mmmmm...sooo good. I've been making a quick and easy version of Smoky Mtn. Chicken for years with just a bottled BBQ sauce. But this BBQ sauce was sooo good, and sooo worth the effort- and it was actually very little effort. I will make extra batches of the sauce and keep them on hand for all my BBQ sauce needs.
What NOT to do. I only thought this dish was ok, but I have say that I also had to substitute some ingredients, the fire on our grill was too low, and I didn't use the onion or cheese on top. I didn't have enough catchup, any brandy or any chipotle in adobe sauce. I subbed: Tomato paste with 1 can of water; Cooking Sherry; S Bend Sauce - a flavorful Barbados brand yellow hot sauce. It was too tomatoe-y for my taste and not sweet at all. Since my fire was too low, I didn't get the caramelizing on the meat like I thought I would. I tried it again the next day with the cheese...still only ok. Sorry!
ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! I didn't have any bourbon at the house, so....I used capt morgan (lol)...and it turned out suprisingly well :)
Delish, but I must confess. I misread the recipe and added 1 tablespoon of the adobo sauce. It tasted great though. I made this twice in a row and still just could not get enough of it. The first time I made it without the cheese and bacon, the second time with it. It's much better with cheese and bacon!!
This recipe is packed with flavor! I used cheddar instead of provolone and skipped the bourbon. It's so good.
Great blend of flavors with just the right amount of bite. I didn't bother with the topping of bacon, red onion, or provolone cheese and it was scrumptous. I did use only 1 cup of ketchup and added 1 cup of Cattleman's Smoke House Barbeque Sauce. I think using 2 cups of ketchup would have made it too strong with tomato flavor. Thanks for the recipe, Janine!
When I made the sauce it was very spicy, I was surprised after I cooked the chicken with it that it was not as spicy any longer. The recipe was wonderful!
This was great. The whole family loved it. Prefer spicier food, so I used half a can of Chipotle with adobo sauce. Otherwise, made exactly as the recipe stated. Used the other half can of chipotle in my mashed potatoes. Thanks for a great recipe. Will try this again, and try it on a pork loin!!
