hmn, seems like it would be way too sweet, what with molassses, brown sugar, honey and preserves!! and "finger linkin' good"?? Ha ha


I have made this recipe many times and it never fails to make people very very happy. There are a lot of ingredients but it's easy. When I bring them to a party I barely make it into the kitchen before people start stealing them!


We loved this recipe. The sauce is fantastic and can be used on a number of different meats. I have also used it on fish. The Drummies are delicious and my husband doesn't usually like that part of the chicken but loved it. I used 1 cup of chopped onion and 2-1/2 teaspoons of chopped garlic, also 3/4 cup of brown sugar, and 1/2 cup of honey and I did not have apricot preserves so I used peach.


Easy to make, very tasty. We like foods with some kick, so this fit the bill. Very sticky.


We really loved this receipe. I like the fact that you can subsitute the meat you use. I will make it a special entree at Christmas.


These were awesome, this recipe made a generous serving so I shared with our neighbors, they loved them too. The sauce tastes better as it cooks so do follow the cooking times, definitely a keeper!
