Excellent! I used boneless chicken breasts, marinated in the sauce for a few hours, then grilled...we loved it! I will try the sauce on ribs next time...

Good not great. The Old Bay added a nice touch but not enough to make me want to make this again. I've have better luck with some of the higher quality bottled bbq sauces.

OHMYGOSH!! This was a BIG hit at my house! I marinaded the chicken in the sauce overnight, and cooked it on my George Foreman grill. Two thumbs up!!

Excellent. Easy alternative to bottled sauce. Made it two times for three adults and had NONE leftover, so I would double this if you like extra sauce for dipping and really want the six servings it says it makes.

The best BBQ sauce... makes incredibly tender chicken! Try it!!

We made this several times during the summer and my husband just can't get enough of it. I'm not a real Old Bay fan but this is recipe is wonderful. It's a keeper for our family!

PERFECT! This is a great recipe for chicken or just to use as a bbq sauce.
