"This is not only quick and easy but great tasting as well. Had I not tasted this delicious grilled chicken I likely would never have chosen to make a barbecue sauce that had horseradish as one of the ingredients. Enjoyed at a friends house, I just had to have the recipe. Love when good friends share! A year around favourite at our house, awesome on the barbecue as well the indoor grill or pan. Love that come mid winter, it gives me that wonderful taste of summer I miss during our long cold winters."

I made this on my grill, not in the oven, so while it was cooking I kept spooning sauce over the top from time to time. The chicken was excellent and so moist and the sauce was wonderful! This is an awesome chicken meal and we will have it often on and off the grill!

Great chicken! We used the same amount of sauce for probably twice the amount of chicken specified. The chicken was very good and everyone enjoyed the meal. Thanks for sharing!

I was also leary of the horseradish but wow did it give this sauce depth! I made the sauce up earlier in the day and gave it time to blend. This is a wonderful bbq sauce. Thanks
