Instructions Checklist
  • Drain chicken, discarding marinade. For a charcoal grill, arrange medium-hot coals around a drip pan. Test for medium heat above the pan. Place chicken, bone sides down, on grill rack over drip pan. Cover and grill for 50 to 60 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170°F for breast halves, 180°F for thighs and drumsticks), brushing with half of the Balsamic BBQ Sauce during the last 15 minutes of grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Adjust for indirect cooking. Place chicken pieces on grill rack over burner that is off. Grill as above.)

Instructions Checklist
  • To serve, pass the remaining Balsamic Barbecue Sauce with the chicken.

Does anyone edit these recipes before they are published? I assume not because the ingredients for the dressing do not match the ingredients in the instructions. The wrong instructions must have been added in error. I also saw in the video for making homemade ranch dressing that not all of the ingredients are listed so the recipe cannot be made. It's a shame that there is no semblance of control here.
