The spice mix for the sauce did not blend well from a flavor perspective. Perhaps there is too much pineapple juice. If I make it again, I’d use half of the prescribed amount.

This came out really well, but was a bit labor intensive. I made the sauce a day ahead of time to let the flavors marry and brined the chicken overnight. Both may have been overkill on my part but the chicken was incredibly moist and the sauce was amazing. Not sure I got much out of the dry rub—not sure how critical that was. I doubled the sauce for two whole parted birds which proved to be unnecessary. I used about half for the basting and put out bowls with extra sauce for those that wanted it—and boy did they want it! Cooked for six small appetites and just 1 breast, 1 thigh and the wings remain. Have a ton of leftover sauce for next time. Served with rice and grilled pineapple.
Delicious and moist! Everyone loves this recipe. Will make often a real crowd pleaser.

great. used skinless breasts as that is what we had ready to chicken Caesar salad until seeing this recipe in my email from yummly. browned in cast iron skillet about 2-3 minutes per side with olive oil medium high then finished on grill, direct heat, on big green egg at 400 turning once about 8 minutes per side. took off at 158 degrees and let rest uncovered for about 5 minutes. served over rice with veggies. looking forward to trying with chicken quarters for a little crispiness but really liked the juicyness and tenderness of the breasts.
