    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Remove chicken from marinade, reserve marinade. Place chicken on grill over medium heat.

    Before serving, brush chicken with the 1/2 cup mixture reserved in step 1.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Turn the chicken frequently as it grills so the heat doesn't char the sugars in the sauce.
  • tip 2
    Not grilling weather? Broil this chicken in your oven. Set oven control to broil. Place chicken skin side down on broiler pan. Broil with top of chicken 6 inches from heat 25 to 30 minutes, turning frequently and brushing with marinade from plastic bag, until juice of chicken is clear when thickest piece is cut to bone (170°F for breasts, 180°F for thighs and drumsticks).
