My family LOVED this! We all thought the rosemary was a wonderful flavor with the cranberry. I made a few changes though... Instead of grilling the chicken I browned it first, poured the sauce over and then baked it. I served it with whole wheat couscous and poured the sauce over everything. TASTY!

I used whole berry canned cranberry on drumsticks. It was good even though it was done in the oven. I'm sure grilling it would have improved the results.

Absolutely delicious. I heated the sauce ingredients on the stove so they would blend. I couldn't get them to blend well otherwise. My kids loved it. (3 yrs and 2 yrs)

I don't have a grill so what I did was brown the chicken on the stove, doubled all the sauce ingredients except the corn syrup, and once the chicken was browned I poured the sauce into the pan and let the chicken finish cooking in the sauce. After the chicken was cooked I took it out and set it aside, let the sauce reduce slightly, and served it over the chicken. Everyone loved it. I didn't have to beg my 6 year old to eat! He devoured it!

Wow, I was stunned that this was sooo yummy! I did not use the corn syrup, I didnt have any, so I put a splash of molasses instead. It worked fine!

I make this in the oven rather than on the grill and it turns out great. To the sauce, I add parsley and then pour it over the chicken on a baking sheet. I bake it for about 25 minutes at 425 and it turns out wonderfully. (Time may vary. I usually start checking it around 25 minutes)

Very tasty. Made in a 400 degree oven, but next time will grill.
