I call this dish “ one ~ 1 ~ one chicken because its all “ one cup, one tablespoon or one teaspoon”… This chicken has a real kick to it…so if you don’t like it to hot put ½ the amount of the hot sauce in, it’s just that simple! You’ll still have enough marinade. *** If you are BBQ-ing the chicken do it as the indirect heat method and baste with remaining marinade. You won’t want to put this directly over the coals as the brown sugar will burn before the chicken is cooked. If you want the skin crisp the last 5 minutes of cooking move it over the coals skin side down.
