  • Brush chicken with Guava Glaze. Grill, covered with grill lid, 30 more minutes or until meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion of thigh registers 180° and thickest portion of breast registers 170°, brushing every 10 minutes with glaze. Cut chicken halves in half between breast and thigh to make 8 serving-size pieces.
