"I made one of the greatest chicken recipes today. Kids, you will love this dish. You can use boneless chicken thighs if you want, but chicken with the bone does not seem to dry out as quickly. I also thought this recipe would work well with a whole chicken. Make sure you cook extra, as it also makes great leftovers. We had the meat in sandwiches the next day, and it tasted even better the second time around. The first time I made this dish, I started cooking the chicken on the grill and then put it in the oven. This added to the smoky flavor and gave the skin a nice crispy texture—yum! The second time, I only cooked it in the oven and it was just as good. This dish was delish."

THE VERDICT

> Fraanz (age 9): He loved the sticky-sweet sauce and thought the barbecue was a nice choice. 10 out of 10
> Matisse: I loved the combination of sweet and spicy flavors. I will keep this recipe on hand. 10 out of 10
