Molasses-Mustard Barbecued Chicken

American barbecued chicken is usually slathered with a tomato-based sauce. This variation skips the tomatoes but keeps the sweet and spicy kick. Molasses gives it a coffee-toffee flavor and that familiar sticky quality that's so appealing. Serve the chicken with creamy potato salad and corn on the cob.

You can use boneless skinless chicken breast halves and we have in the past but we all love the thighs. We are now finding boneless thighs at Wegmans
