These are cooked on the grill. This is fun because it allows everyone to have both dark and white meat. :)

Yum! This was a real hit at my house. It was simple and we loved the baste/sauce with it. This will be a repeat here! Thanks for sharing this nice keeper, breezer. Congrats on your football win!
