I like to serve this savory chicken at family picnics. Cooked on a covered grill, the poultry stays so tender and juicy. Everyone loves the zesty, slightly sweet homemade barbecue sauce—and it's so easy to make. —Priscilla Weaver, Hagerstown, Maryland

"I love chicken with pineapple, yet I wanted to try something different," explains Carrie Price of Uneeda, West Virginia. "So I came up with this sweet and tangy chicken that doesn't take long to prepare and only uses one pan."
