    sunflowerseed's Note:

    Inspired by Cuisine at Home magazine. The original recipe calls for chicken leg quarters, but I used boneless chicken thighs and it turned out great. You could also use boneless chicken breast if you like. It also called for a special barbeque sauce, but we used our own homemade sauce - you could use your favorite sauce or a store-bought one.
