Lemon Barbecued Chicken

Lemon Barbecued Chicken

"My husband loves chicken, so when we bought our first charcoal grill, we needed a recipe for barbecued chicken. We ended up combining two recipes to come up with this one. We've used it the past 3 or 4 years now and haven't come across any recipe that's better."

  1. Whisk together the first 10 ingredients. Add onion; set aside 1/4 cup. Pour remaining marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. Grill the chicken, covered, over indirect medium heat for 45 minutes or until juices run clear, turning and basting with reserved marinade every 8-10 minutes.
  3. To bake chicken: After marinating, place chicken in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Pour all of the marinade over it. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 1-1/4 hours or until juices run clear, basting occasionally.

Everyone ate this but we felt it was too vinegary however I think this might be really good cold in a spinach salad with raspberrys and walnuts

I thought this was OK, my boyfriend really enjoyed it. I could taste the cider vinegar a little too much...did turn out very moist though! Thanks for the recipe!

Absolutely delicious!!!!!!! Didn't have an onion on hand so I used two shallots instead. Aside from that, followed recipe exactly and it was sooooo good - thank you for sharing!
