Grilled Marinated Chicken

Recipe by ellie_

We enjoyed this chicken -- the recipe calls for marinating the chicken for 30-60 minutes, but I ran out of time, so mine was marinated for maybe 10/15 minutes but still was great. Recipe source: local newspaper which was adapted from Soaked, Slathered, and Seasoned by Elizabeth Karmel.

Wow what a great chicken recipe. I followed everything exactly right up to the actual grilling where instead of direct heat I used an indirect heat for grilling the chicken to help prevent flare-ups. I just find this method to work better for me while grilling chicken. There was a bit more heat that I like but hubby and son loved it so next time I may cut back on the red pepper flakes for part of the chicken but overall it was a great recipe and one I will use again. Thanks for sharing in Newest Zaar Star.

  1. Combine first 6 ingredients (orange juice - red pepper flakes) in a bowl (I used a large plastic measuring cup) and then whisk in the olive oil and herbs.
  2. Pat chicken dry and place in a large zip lock bag or marinating bowl and add 1 3/4 cups marinade, turn to coat. Place in fridge for 30-60 minutes.
  3. Prepare grill.
  4. Remove chicken from marinade and place chicken on grill, bone side down, cover turning chicken occasionally. Grill covered until chicken is done (30 minutes).
  5. Remove from the grill and drizzle chicken with remaining marinade and let rest for 10 minutes before serving.
