When I first served this instead of usual fried chicken, my family was hesitant...until they sampled it! Now we alternate between our old standby and our newfound favorite.
Total TimePrep: 5 min. Grill: 50 min.
- 3/4 cup barbecue sauce
- 1/4 cup thawed orange juice concentrate
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3 to 3-1/2 pounds), cut up
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- In a small bowl, combine the first four ingredients; set aside. Grill chicken, covered, over medium-low heat, turning and basting with butter several times, for 30 minutes. Then grill, uncovered, turning and basting with orange juice mixture several times, for 20-30 minutes or until juices run clear.
