Tips

Expert Tips

If you have real maple syrup, use it instead of the maple-flavored syrup.

Feeding a large crowd? Just double the recipe.

Brushing with the sauce during the last part of the cooking time keeps it from burning. Remember this any time you have a sauce with sugar in it.

Coleslaw, baked beans, buttermilk biscuits and strawberry shortcake are perfect accompaniments to this tasty chicken. Don't forget the lemonade!
