    Bergy's Note:

    This is a great way to BBQ a chicken to ensure it will be cooked through and juicy. It only takes 3/4 hr to finish before serving. Use whatever juice you like - cranberry, orange whatever. It looks divine and tase good too

      This was outstanding! The cooking method imparted the wonderful spice flavour throughout the chicken and left it really tender. The reduced cooking time on the BBQ also meant no burning of the honey / juice mixture that often happens when cooking one on the BBQ from scratch.
