Barbecued Chicken 'n' Rice Recipe

For this recipe, my daughters enjoy measuring the rice and stirring together the spices and other ingredients that go into the homemade barbecue sauce. The moist, tender chicken is one of their dad's favorites, so they're always proud to have played a part in making it.—Patricia Kaliska, Phillips, Wisconsin
