Halved chicken is a perfect choice for winter grilling. Cooked over indirect heat, it virtually eliminates grill flare-ups. This version from Micheal Everidge of Morristown, Tennessee features a tangy four-ingredient mustard sauce you can whip up in minutes.


  • 1/2 cup prepared mustard
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon salt-free seasoning blend
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3 pounds), cut in half


  1. In a small bowl, combine the mustard, honey, seasoning blend and Worcestershire sauce. Carefully loosen the skin of the chicken; spoon some of the mustard mixture under the skin.
  2. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Prepare grill for indirect heat, using a drip pan. Place chicken skin side up over drip pan and grill, covered, over indirect medium heat for 20-30 minutes on each side or until juices run clear and a thermometer reads 180°, basting occasionally with remaining mustard mixture.
  3. Cover chicken and let stand for 5 minutes before cutting into serving-size pieces.
