  • Hint
  • You may also substitute boneless, skinless chicken breasts for the thighs and adjust cooking time accordingly.
  • Cooking Tip
  • For success in grilling chicken with the skin on and the bone in, you must watch it carefully. Turn often and move the chicken around on the grill to compensate for hot spots.

This flavor was absolutely wonderful. The chicken was marinated overnite and was really juicy. Served with rice and mixed fresh veggies.

I baked this in a 350 oven for about an hour. I added the glaze the last 15 minutes or so. Very tasty.
