I made this recipe this weekend when I learned I'd be having unexpected overnight guests. The night before I cut up a whole chicken and put it in a simple brine (water, apple cider, a little brown sugar and cracked peppercorns). I made the sauce in advanced and planned on grilling the chicken. It rained, so after draining the brine off the chicken, I let the chicken marinate in this sauce for about 1 hour. I set aside about 1 cup of the sauce. I baked the chicken at 350 for about 1 hour and at the very end, brushed the remaining sauce on the chicken. My GUESTS LOVED IT! And I couldn't believe it, a couple of my neighbors could smell it baking and they knocked on my door to tell me how good it smelled (I live in the suburbs). This is great, great, GREAT! Only thing different I did was to add a few pieces of pineapple (smashed) to the sauce as I found them in the bottom of a leftover bowl of fruit! I'm sure it wasn't necessary - but I did it. Thank you CCLady for sharing!!!
