This recipe has a wonderful flavor! The BBQ sauce is made with maple syrup which helps to cut the tangyiness of the BBQ sauce. This is one of my families favorites!

I tried this today and it was wonderful. I used liquid hickory smoke also and left out the cooking oil in the sauce. We have dietary restrictions. We definitely will have it again.I put the onion under the chicken (skinless). Thank you!!!!!
