Recipe notes and helpful tips
- Use a large Ziploc bag for the marinade and the chicken. The chicken is easy to move around and it can be flipped over if there is not quite enough marinade to cover everything.
- Grill the chicken over medium heat. Too high and the outside gets dry and crispy and inside is not cooked fully.
- Use a small poultry or instant read thermometer. Once the internal temperature is 165 degrees remove from the grill, cover loosely with aluminum foil and allow to rest for 10-15 minutes.
- Remove 1/2 cup of the marinade before adding chicken to the bag to baste with.
