Maple-Mustard Glazed Chicken

3/4 cup maple-flavored syrup
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
1 cut-up whole chicken (3 to 3 1/2 lb)
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper

Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. In 1-quart saucepan, mix maple syrup, mustard and chives.
Sprinkle both sides of chicken pieces with seasoned salt and pepper. Cover and grill chicken over medium heat, skin sides up, 15 minutes; turn chicken. Cover and grill 20 to 40 minutes longer, turning occasionally and brushing 2 or 3 times with mustard mixture, until juice of chicken is clear when thickest piece is cut to bone.
Heat remaining mustard mixture to boiling; boil 1 minute. Serve sauce with chicken.
