Ingredients

  • 1 whole chicken, about 4 lbs., giblets and any excess fat removed.
  • Marinade

Directions

  • In a small bowl whisk the marinade ingredients
  • Cut the chicken into six pieces: two breast halves, two whole legs (thigh and drumstick), and two wings (remove and discard wing tips)
  • Brush each chicken piece on both sides with the marinade.
  • If you have the time, marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for as long as 4 hours. If not, you can roast the chicken right away.

  • During the last 5 minutes of grilling time, move the chicken over direct medium heat and cook until well browned all over, turning once or twice.
