I am really looking forward to warmer weather so I can grill these. I did them in the oven, and they were great, and I think will be even better over the fire! I also think this delicious marinade would be good on a pork tenderloin.

Delicious! I marinated for 8 hours, and grilled on a charcoal grill. I did use boneless, skinless thighs, so I reduced the cooking time. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. Such juicy, tender chicken!! The sugar in the marinade caused flare-ups, but if you watch closely you can control this. I loved this marinade, and will use it again. Made for a welcome home for my son coming home for Christmas from college....he loved this!

This made a wonderful summer meal. I marinated the chicken thighs overnight and there was so much flavor in the chicken. The glaze was nice although did char easily. I think this would make tasty chicken wings too. Served with lime & cilantro rice and sesame slaw. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
