Expert Tips

Sugar can cause flare-ups on the grill. In this recipe we used reduced-sugar preserves to lower the risk of flare-ups and burned chicken. Keeping the cover on the grill also helps to minimize flare-ups.

Chili sauce is a condiment similar to ketchup made from tomatoes, dried chiles, onions, green peppers, vinegar, sugar and spices. Chili sauce is spicier and chunkier than ketchup and is stocked near the ketchup at the supermarket.

To cut about 130 calories and 11 grams of fat from each serving, remove the skin from the chicken before grilling it.
