This couldn't be more economical....buy a whole chicken on sale at the grocery store, and ask the butcher to half it for you.....or do it yourself. Feeds 2 hearty appetites, or 4 small appetites.
- 1 broiler-fryer chicken, halved (2 1/2 to 3 lb)
- 3⁄4 cup butter, melted
- 1⁄3 cup vinegar
- 1⁄4 cup honey
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1 dash pepper
- Place the halved chicken in a large, shallow container.
- Combine the remaining ingredients, stirring sauce well.
- Grill chicken, skin side up, over hot coals 30 to 35 minutes or until done. Turn and baste frequently with sauce.
Great grilled chicken recipe. I loved the flavor blend of the butter, honey and garlic. This is a super simple recipe with tasty results. Note: My electric grill tends to cook hot and flame up a lot with basting recipes, and I ended up burning the heck out of the chicken skin. I just took most of the skin off and basted the meat a few more times before taking it off the grill.
Boy, was this a hit.. Very satisfying dinner. Followed the directions to a tee, and one delightful chicken was well enjoyed. We also thought this had a nice variety of seasonings. It is very economical, and into the save file this goes . Made for PRMR tag.
I made this for my family because it sounded yummy, and to them, it was. Perfect blend of sweet and savory, and the grilling just seemed to make it moist. I tried a little bit of the meat, and it was quite good -- just too fattening for me.
