I came up with the idea for this chicken in an effort to create a meat dish to go with the black beans and rice I was planning for dinner. (I didn't have quite enough beans to make them the main course!) This chicken turned out so good...sweet, spicy and sticky. A perfect complement to the beans and rice!

Turn grill to low, or move chicken pieces to an unheated area of the grill and cook over indirect heat with the lid down for about 15-20 more min.
