Smoky Garlic and Spice Chicken Recipe

Smoky Garlic and Spice Chicken Recipe

A soy sauce-based marinade gives this moist, crispy chicken rich flavor. To make chicken satay, I vary the ingredients a bit and marinate the meat longer.—Tina Repak Mirilovich, Johnstown, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + marinating Grill: 1 hr. + standing YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3 to 4 pounds), split in half lengthwise

Directions

  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine first eight ingredients. Add chicken; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, rub on the grill rack to coat lightly. Prepare grill for indirect heat, using a drip pan.
  • 3. Place chicken cut side down over drip pan and grill, covered, over indirect medium heat 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until a thermometer reads 170-175°, turning occasionally. Let stand 10 minutes before carving. Yield: 4 servings.
