Apple Glazed BBQ Chicken, Member FRP

Made the chicken on the barbecue I assembled the ingredients and marinated the chicken in the morning. I stuffed the bird with the apples and onions and tied the legs together. When it was time to make dinner I threw the birds on the grill no basting was needed. Everyone raved at how tender the chicken was. Very easy and very tasty.
