Everyone will love this sweet and savoury chicken. Mix it up by using a variety of white and dark meat so that they all get their favourite pieces. Be sure to cut chicken breasts in half crosswise, through the bone, to make them more similar in size to the thighs and drumsticks. For a fun garnish, cut a lime in half to grill alongside the chicken for the last 10 minutes.
