*cues* “So long I ent see yuh!” Walk into the room with this chicken and all will quickly be forgiven! ???I made this delectable Guava-Glazed Chicken, with fresh Rosemary from my garden, back in April on my Twitch stream!

A twist on a recipe that I saw in 50 Shades of Chicken (an awesome and hilarious Secret Santa gift that I received from another streamer last year), I hope you will find the outcome as enjoyable as I did!
