Enjoy this spicy and sweet chicken dish at your next barbecue.

Cooking tip: Cajun food is often very spicy. If you want to tame the heat, try adding a touch of honey to your chicken before you sprinkle it with herbs. You’ll need to take care when grilling as it may start to scorch if left unattended.
