Expert Tips

  • If you like a little kick to your chicken, add 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne) to the brown sugar mixture.
  • Serve this chicken whole, as you would a roasted chicken, or remove the meat from the bones, and shred into bite-size pieces to use in any number of other recipes.
