Nothing beats the tantalizing aroma of marinated chicken on the grill! Try this version that's fresh as can be with lemon, garlic and spices.
Updated May 7, 2009

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup olive or vegetable oil
  • Grated fresh peel from 1 lemon (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon garlic-pepper blend
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 cut-up whole chicken (3 to 3 1/2 lb)

Steps

  • 1
    In 1-gallon resealable heavy-duty plastic food-storage bag, mix all ingredients except chicken. Add chicken; seal bag and turn to coat with marinade. Refrigerate at least 1 hour but no longer than 24 hours, turning bag occasionally, to marinate.
  • 2
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade.
  • 3
    Place chicken, skin sides up, on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 15 minutes. Turn chicken. Cover grill; cook 20 to 40 minutes longer, turning occasionally, until juice of chicken is clear when thickest piece is cut to bone (170°F for breasts; 180°F for thighs and drumsticks).

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens
