    Hey Jude's Note:

    This is best made with organic chicken....the only chicken I serve to my family. The ones I buy are usually on the small side and cook more quickly than those plump monsters that are bought sealed in plastic. This is my classic kind of recipe - simple and tasty....the chicken is marinated AFTER cooking, rather than before. This is good served with steamed new potatoes, cole slaw and ice cold beer.

    1. 1
      Mix lime juice, olive oil, ginger, sugar and garlic in a large bowl; set aside.
    2. 2
      Rinse chicken pieces and pat dry; season with salt and pepper.
    3. 3
      Grill the chicken directly over a medium-hot fire on a gas or charcoal grill for about five minutes on each side; shift to indirect heat and continue cooking until done but moist, about another 10 minutes per side.
    4. 4
      Remove chicken from grill and place into bowl of marinade; let the grilled chicken absorb the fragrant juice for about 5 minutes, then serve.

      I used chicken leg quarters and key lime juice. The chicken was tender and moist. The marinade provided a light flavor. I think I will try this with split game hens. Excellent!
