Delicious grilled chicken. We enjoyed every last piece! We had potato salad and broccoli salad to go with it. Yum!

This is great grilled chicken! My wife prepared this and then I did the grilling. We can't wait to share it with my family once this Covid thing is over!

I microwaved my chicken breasts for about 25 minutes because I have a small microwave . I used original Sweet Baby Ray's barbecue sauce and along with the other ingredients the chicken was so flavorful! I wish now I had made this much earlier in the season, so we could have been enjoying it all this time!
