Perfect Grilled Chicken



Grilled Chicken



Units Scale
  • 1 whole chicken cut up (have your butcher cut up a chicken, but make sure to keep the bones in and skin on, this is what keeps your meat moist and flavorful)
  • Plus 2 boneless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 jar of your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp fresh cracked pepper


  1. Combine all the marinade ingredients and stir until sugar dissolves.  Add the chicken and marinate for 30 minutes to 2 hours.
  2. Heat your grill to high for 10 minutes, covered with the lid.  Scrape off any residual bits on your grill.
  3. Place your chicken skin side down, then reduce your heat to low.
  4. Cover grill with the lid, cook for 15 minutes.  Flip and cook for another 15 minutes.
  5. Check chicken to make sure it’s cooked through to the bone.  Remove and let rest for a few minutes before serving.
