This was fantastic! I cut down the sugar and salt, and added extra virgin olive oil instead of butter to the glaze. (I added the oil after boiling the other ingredients). I served the chicken with some lime wedges, and it was even better with the extra lime juice. I was looking for something different from the same old boring chicken recipes I've been making, and this was it! Thanks so much!!!
This is an amazing way to make chicken! My hole family adored this for dinner and we have made it three times now. Thank you so much for a great treat! It was well worth the work.
