Contest-Winning Barbecued Chicken Recipe

Contest-Winning Barbecued Chicken Recipe

Every summer, we have a neighborhood cookout. I always take this chicken and watch it quickly disappear! My family loves this recipe because of the zesty seasoning blend and no-fuss barbecue sauce. —Linda Scott, Hahira, Georgia
