This was chicken was really good! This was my first attempt at grilling chicken on our new gas grill and I wasn't sure how it would work, but the whole thing went fine. I cooked three chicken breasts which I cut in half so the thin ends wouldn't over cook. I cut the recipe for the glaze in half and should have made it 1/4. With the first piece I ate I didn't taste the glaze that much but it came through on the 2nd. I cooked down a little of the glaze to dip in - the rosemary was almost too much in doing this - I would set some aside next time before adding the rosemary for this use. My chicken started cooking faster then I expected and I wasn't sure it would have enough time to cook with the glaze so I moved it to the upper rack to slow it down, I would probably start basting sooner. My only other change would be to not salt the chicken before cooking, with the additional salt from the glaze ingredients I found it a little too salty. Thank you Evelyn for another tasty dish!
