Our friend, Pat, has a passion for many things —playing great music (see Local Vocals), selling real estate (he spent 4 years searching with us), and cooking delicious food for friends. After tasting our Spicy Strawberry Spread, he was eager to “play” with it.  A few evenings later, he showed up with a late night treat -- Spicy Strawberry BBQ Chicken.

Sara was eager to try it out (and take photos for this post) but had limited time.  She skipped the marinade and roasted it in the the oven.  Her family reported that it was  "delicious.”

Thanks, Pat! Thanks, Sara!

The timing couldn't be better because whether you grill it or roast it,  Spicy Strawberry BBQ Chicken is perfect for Father's Day!

So, here’s Spicy Strawberry BBQ Chicken 2-ways using Pat’s recipe with a slight modification from Sara.
