Recipe Spotlight

Spicy Grilled Chicken

Meet the Cook: Very near the top of the list of foods I prepare for company is this chicken. It's easy to fix and has never flopped. It is a family favorite, too - any leftovers are great in a salad or sandwich. My husband and I are the parents of eight, who range in age from 24 to 11. We also have three grandchildren. -Edith Maki, Hancock, Michigan
