    Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. In 1-quart saucepan, mix maple syrup, mustard and chives.
  • 2
    Sprinkle both sides of chicken pieces with seasoned salt and pepper. Cover and grill chicken over medium heat, skin sides up, 15 minutes; turn chicken. Cover and grill 20 to 40 minutes longer, turning occasionally and brushing 2 or 3 times with mustard mixture, until juice of chicken is clear when thickest piece is cut to bone (170°F for breasts; 180°F for thighs and legs).

    Heat remaining mustard mixture to boiling; boil 1 minute. Serve sauce with chicken.

Expert Tips

If you have real maple syrup, use it instead of the maple-flavored syrup.

Feeding a large crowd? Just double the recipe.

Brushing with the sauce during the last part of the cooking time keeps it from burning. Remember this any time you have a sauce with sugar in it.

Coleslaw, baked beans, buttermilk biscuits and strawberry shortcake are perfect accompaniments to this tasty chicken. Don't forget the lemonade!
