Spicy chicken this was...I wasn't sure what kind of chili sauce, so I used a chili garlic sauce. Not sure if that was right, but it sure tasted good! Due to negligence, (DH forgot to fill the gas tank for the grill :-( ) I had to prepare these in the oven. I just used a broiler pan, and cooked at 450ยบ, basting and turning a couple of times. I will fix these again, on the grill, as I know they could only be better! Thanks for sharing a great recipe, ~Nimz~!

Very good - it was not quite spicy enough for us, so next time we'll add more hot sauce and just a little bit less chili sauce. We also marinated the chicken for about 30 minutes instead of basting while cooking, and I think next time we'll marinate a bit longer. Didn't make the dipping sauce, just used ranch dressing, and that worked really well. I used the leftovers over rice, added soy sauce and hot sauce, and that was wonderful.
