I joined this site to specifically say that this recipe is idiot proof. And I am the idiot to prove it. I'm a good cook, usually follow recipes (the first time), but this one I screwed up so much and it still came out FABULOUS.
I read a lot of the reviews (not all 1,200), and none mentioned grilling skin-on, mixed chicken pieces. Well, that is what we do in the summer. So understanding that...
I made the marinade. Cider vinegar, brown sugar, garlic (powder - I don't like the burning pieces of garlic on the grill), olive oil, 1/2 a lemon's juice (I only had the dreaded bottled lemon juice), half a lime (I only had, even WORSE, Rose's sweetened lime juice).
Put in the 2 pieces of chicken, with skin. Only 2 pieces of chicken because with all my other marinades I just boil up the marinade as a sauce.
I go back to the website to see if anyone boils their marinade, and people keep talking about "mustard". MUSTARD???? What mustard? I totally spaced on the mustard.
Out comes the pan from the fridge, in goes the whole grain mustard (which is not that hard to find, I use Maille Old Style).
8 hours later, time to grill.
Since I was afraid of flare-ups (sugar and oil), I scrape almost all the marinade off the chicken, pour it all into a pan. Boil for 5+ minutes (if you boil for 5 minutes, you get rid of the chicken "problem").
Husband grills chicken (no flare ups), add the reduced sauce at the table, and it is FABULOUS.
Even with screwups- just delicious. A keeper.
