    It was very good! Ended up using my own seasoning mix in addition to the barbecue sauce but it was very tasty! Easy and tasty, my favorite recipes!

    I baked for 43 minutes and then broiled on HI for close to 3 minutes. Chicken was moist. I think I’ll use a bit more seasoning next time. Overall, not bad.

    I think 10 minute range of bake time is not good. I baked for 20 mins then had to keep broiling because the chicken wasn’t reaching cooked temperature. Outside overcooked, inside undercooked. Next time I will bake for at least 25 minutes before broiling.
