Grilled Spiced Honey Chicken

I bookmarked this yummy recipe in May and have made it several times since.  Thank you Erika at My Road to Savings for posting this delicious twist on chicken.  Erika posted the recipe using chicken thighs to be baked in the oven, but we changed it up a bit using chicken breasts on the grill.  Grill = less mess in the kitchen ... less mess in the kitchen = happy mommy!
This dish is deliciously flavorful, spicy, and sweet - you won't be disappointed!
Best dishes and yummy dreams!

What exactly are red pepper flakes? is there an alternative? I've never seen them here.... (northern ireland) :)

Crushed red pepper? It's dried hot peppers in a form that you can shake on a dish (like pepper). I'm sure any spicy spice would work ;)
