I got this recipe from a free booklet I picked up at the grocery store, and am very pleased with it. It's easy to prepare, but nice enough for company. Enjoy!

This was quite nice looking! I made a few modifications, mostly that I used bone-in skin-on legs instead - I'm always worried about the boneless/skinless drying out too much. But I prepared the sauce as directed - it was good, but a skosh too sweet for my taste - I will definitely make this again but maybe half the molasses. We're just not that used to sweet stuff. The pear slices definitely made the dish look classy! Thanks!
