Tried Sarah Esparza's submission of this. I Just had to play and try some additions & subtractions. This is what I came up with.

This recipe was okay. I had a 5 lb chicken so I doubled up on the sauce. I did baste the chicken every 15-20 minutes or so to make sure it would stay moist. My only disappointement was that it didn't have a lot of flavor. I think it may need to be covered with aluminum foil or something while it is cooking to try to keep the flavor in.
