  • 5Place chicken pieces on rack.
  • 6Brush on both sides with basting sauce.
  • 7Grill chicken for 12 to 15 minutes on one side, brushing with basting sauce from time to time.
  • 8Turn chicken over.
  • 9Brush again with sauce.
  • 10Grill chicken for another 12 to 15 minutes or until chicken is done and juices run clear when pierced with a fork.
  • 11Serve immediately with crusty bread and a tossed green salad, tomatoes and crispy baked potato wedges.
