Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine all Marinade ingredients in a 1-gallon ziplock plastic freezer bag. Set aside 1/4 cup of the marinade. Add chicken to marinade in bag. Gently massage bag until chicken is well coated in marinade. Seal bag, squeezing out excess air. Lay bag flat on a small rimmed baking sheet, and place in refrigerator. Chill 3 hours, turning bag once or twice.

  • Remove from refrigerator, and let stand 40 minutes.

  • Preheat grill to medium (350°F to 400°F). Remove chicken from marinade; reserve marinade. Season chicken with salt and pepper to taste, if desired. Grill chicken, skin side down, uncovered, on lightly oiled grill grates until a meat thermometer inserted near the bone registers 165°F, about 10 minutes per side, basting occasionally with reserved marinade from bag. Serve with reserved 1/4 cup marinade.
