Lexington-Style Grilled Chicken

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by MsSally

This is from Southern Living May 2010. Full of flavor and so easy to do. The original recipe calls for 1/4 c of oil, but I changed it to be a little more health concious. I also used skinless bone in chicken breasts. Cheaper alternative to boneless skinless breasts.

This chicken had a nice sweet-tang to it. I left out the red pepper flakes so the kids would eat it, but I increased the back pepper a little. Used b/s chicken breasts since I grabbed the wrong chicken out of the freezer. Made for 1-2-3-Hits.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Stir together first 6 ingredients until blended.
  2. Divide vinegar mixture and chicken between 2 large zip-top plastic freezer bags, and seal bags. Chill 2 to 8 hours, turning bags occasionally.
  3. Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade.
  4. Grill chicken, covered with grill lid, 35 to 40 minutes or until done, turning occasionally. ** I turn off the two center burners for the last 15 mins or so.
