Marinated Chicken Quarters

Yield Makes 4 servings
Lemon juice, garlic, and herbs make for an easy marinate for this chicken. Bone-in breast halves can be used in place of the chicken quarters.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried or 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 (2 1/2-pound) whole chicken, quartered
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 7 ingredients; reserve 1/2 cup butter mixture.

  2. Sprinkle chicken evenly with salt and pepper. Place in shallow dishes or heavy-duty zip-top plastic bags; pour remaining butter mixture evenly over chicken. Cover or seal, and chill, along with reserved butter mixture, 8 hours.

  3. Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade.

  4. Grill, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) 40 to 45 minutes or until done, basting often with reserved butter mixture and turning once.
