An old standby, Honey Garlic Chicken is just as good for a Wednesday night as it is for football on Sunday. It's easy, it's quick, and it's awesome. Let's bang this one out- the family is hungry!
Marinade Time: Overnight
Cook Time: 15 Minutes
1 cut up whole chicken
Dry rub of your choice. For these I used Weber Brand Honey Garlic rub.
Step 1 - Place chicken in large plastic bag. Add a little Soy Sauce and a liberal amount of Honey Garlic rub. Agitate the bag, mixing chicken around to be sure it is evenly covered in rub and Soy. Place in fridge for tomorrow.
Step 2 - After chicken has been in marinade at least 4 hours - you are ready to cook it!
Step 3 - Light grill and burn off. I start my grill on high heat and leave the lid closed for about 5 minutes to burn off any residual stuff from last cook. Then clean with Grill daddy or similar grill brush.
Step 4 - Open grill lid and spray grates with Grill Spray or Olive Oil.
Step 5 - Apply chicken and leave on high heat with lid open until lightly charred.
Step 6 - Flip chicken and char opposite side.
Step 7 - Once both sides of chicken have a nice char, reduce heat to medium low and close lid.
Step 8 - Cook at low heat for around 10 minutes. Use a meat thermometer to make sure chicken has reached an internal temp of 160 degrees.
Step 9 - Once chicken is internally 160 degrees, open lead and put grill back up to high heat.
Step 10 - Lightly spray chicken with Canola or Olive Oil and allow to crisp a bit. Do this on both sides. This will give it a bit of crunch.
Step 11 - Mess with grill marks by moving chicken to hot parts of grate if you want. Make it pretty! Appearance is half the fun when serving your family or guests.
Step 12 - EAT!
