A friend made this saucy chicken for us when we had our first child. I pared down the recipe to make it lower in fat and calories. Now it's a family favorite, and even the kids ask for it. —Marge Wagner, Roselle, Illinois
Summer barbecue season is here, and you'll both love grilling when this savory mainstay from Mary Kaye Rackowitz of Marysville, Washington is on the menu. Hot pepper sauce adds a little zip to the tender chicken.
My party-ready barbecue recipe works great on weeknights, too. With just a few minutes of prep time, you still get that low-and-slow flavor everybody craves (thanks, slow cooker!). Throw in minced jalapenos for extra oomph. —Kimberly Young, Mesquite, Texas

"This tender glazed chicken is so delicious, it will disappear very quickly," writes Ruth Lowen from Hythe, Alberta. The sweet maple sauce is used to baste the chicken while grilling, with additional served alongside for dipping.
It's fun for me to have my family together so I can prepare their favorite foods, like this saucy barbecued chicken. The moist and plump pieces always bring enthusiastic compliments from our four grown children and three grandkids. —Barbara Blickens Derfer, Edgewater, Florida
My husband loves chicken, so when we bought our first charcoal grill, we needed a recipe for barbecued chicken. We ended up combining two recipes to come up with this one. We've used it the past 3 or 4 years now and haven't come across any recipe that's better.
