Last night my daughter and family, along with good friends Mark and Cheryl (and baby MaKenzie), came over for dinner. We all made some food and had one delicious feast. I put together the sauce for the chicken (which my son-in-law grilled). The recipe was another one found in the August/September 1998 "Taste of Home" magazine. It was really yummy. I added a touch more hot sauce and used boneless chicken breasts. Next time, I think I will cut back on the celery seed, tho.
It was a hit; everyone seemed to enjoy it. My 4 year old grandson ate a big breast himself.

In a saucepan, saute the garlic in butter until tender. Add the next eight ingredients. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. removed from the heat and set aside.
Grill the chicken, covered, over medium heat for 30 minutes, turning occasionally. Baste with sauce. Grill 15 minutes longer or until juices run clear, basting and turning several times.
I am a single mom with two kids - a 16 year old son who lives with me and a 27 year old daughter who lives less than mile away. I like to cook and I love to try new dishes. I especially love when either kids spends time in the kitchen with me.
