Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and easy We substituted a bit of cayenne for the peprika. And used chicken breast with skin and bone attached. Turned out excellent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Juicy and Savory Not only did this look both beautiful before and after the grill. Looks also translated into taste. It is very juicy and the brown sugar when burnt just a little adds a hint of sweetness to compliment the chili powder. Everyone at the dinner table loved it. We're so stuffed.
