2. Heat grill to medium (350° to 450°). Grill chicken, skin side down, until browned, 5 to 8 minutes; watch for flare-ups and move chicken to a cooler spot if needed. Turn chicken and grill until cooked through, about 4 minutes.
3. Grill lemon wedges and onions in last few minutes, turning once, just until grill marks appear. Serve with chicken.
