DIRECTIONS

  • Marinate chicken in zip-lock bag over-nite.
  • Reserve 1/4 cup marinade to baste while cooking, making sure the chicken cooks on both sides minutes AFTER basting the final time--we don't want our Italian friend Sal Monilla to show up :-).
  • Grill over indirect heat, turning 4 times, 12 minutes each time.
  • Serve with your favorite tortillas, rice and Borracho beans.
