BBQ'ed Chicken Judy's Way!


I have been grilling chicken with this marinade for as long as I can remember. It always turns out perfect & gives great flavor! I will give you options to use for different taste but all are terrific!
2/3 Cup White Vinegar
3 TBS Honey
2 Teaspoons Crushed Garlic
2 Teaspoons Salt
2 Teaspoons Paprika
2 Tablespoons Chopped Parsley
4 Tablespoons Olive Oil, or use Melted Butter, or Vegetable oil
Dash Red Pepper or White Pepper to taste
1 Heaping Tablespoon Ketchup, or BBQ Sauce, or Hoisin Sauce
2 LBS Chicken, I used whole legs but chicken halves or breast would be great too!

Mix all together & bring to a boil. GRILL: I preheat my gas grill with one side turned off the other on high! Lay Chicken on the grill on the off side , cover with the lid & grill for 15 minutes. Now baste with the marinade. Close the lid & cook another 15 minutes & then baste. Repeat the process. Cook chicken with bone in & skin on for about 45 minutes! This is great for chicken but if you do boneless skinless I suggest basting the chicken then wrap in foil to grill! Chicken should test at 165 internal degrees. If you need to turn the grill side the chicken is at & grill with the other side on high & the chicken side on low, but watch carefully for flare ups. This will speed up the cooking & crisp up that glorious skin!
