How to Make Grilled Chicken

Grilled Chicken
“Slow-grilling over indirect heat keeps this chicken moist and tender. Giving the drumsticks a long rub with seasonings makes them taste great. Always baste at the end of grilling to prevent the legs from burning”

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 large cloves cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 10 chicken drumsticks
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons  sauce

Directions

  1. Mash brown sugar, garlic, salt, and pepper together in a mortar and pestle to form a paste. Spoon paste into a resealable plastic bag. Add the chicken, coat with the paste, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 8 hours to overnight.
  2. Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir onion in hot oil until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir, bring to a simmer and cook until flavors blend, about 10 minutes.
  3. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Remove chicken from bag and discard marinade.
  4. Cook chicken on the preheated grill until lightly browned on all sides, about 1 minute per side.
  5. Turn off one of the grill burners or move the coals and move chicken so there is no heat source directly below it.
  6. Baste drumsticks with the sauce and cook another 10 minutes; turn again and baste chicken with sauce. Continue to grill drumsticks until juices run clear, 10 to 15 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
              Cook’s Note:
  • You can also blend the brown sugar, garlic, salt, and pepper in a blender or food processor to make the marinade paste.
