Cajun Butterbasted Grilled Chicken Recipe @pinch

Know how to amp up your grilled chicken this summer? Make this butter havebasted grilled chicken. The Cajun butter glaze is sweet and spicy, but the spice is not overpowering. We based our chicken until was gone. So good, we didn't want to waste a drop. You can use chicken with or without skin. We tried both, and the chicken with skin did char a little between the honey and fat. It was still delicious. I came up with the idea for this chicken in an effort to create a meat dish to go with the black beans and rice I was planning for dinner. (I didn't have quite enough beans to make them the main course!) This chicken turned out so good... sweet, spicy, and sticky. A perfect complement to the beans and rice.
