      Okay, this is one of those 10-STAR recipes for sure! The citrus/sweetness of the sauce balances the zip in the rub. I did cut the amount of salt in the seasoning mix in half, though. I used thigh and breast pieces and put them in a grill basket on the outdoor rotisserie. Chicken was juicy and so tasty! I think this would be great on a pork tenderloin also! Made for Kittencalskitchen grilling tag game.

      This recipe sounds like its a lot of effort, as the ingredient list is long ,but it's really not. I used skin on chicken breasts (DH preference!),and grilled inside. Great results...we really enjoyed this. Beautiful flavours and moist chicken...can't wait to try this on the barbie! Thanks gailanng!
