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!
