Grilled Maple-Chile Chicken

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by NcMysteryShopper

The sweet-spicy marinade really intensifies the chicken's grilled flavors and elevates it to a new high for chicken! For a wonderfully deep maple flavor, use a dark amber syrup, if you can find it. Time does not include 30 minutes to 1 hour of marinating time.
