Roadside Chicken

I used 2 # of chicken breasts to make this, so made all the marinade and divided it in half before putting the chicken in.  I then added only 1/4 cup oil to the remaining marinade.  We loved this.  It was a very moist chicken that tastes great on a green salad the next day!
Roadside Chicken



For the marinade:

  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt

  • 4-5 pounds chicken thighs or drumsticks, bone in

For the basting sauce (this is the same as the marinade except with vegetable oil)

  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt

1.      Mix together ingredients for marinade and stir until salt and sugar are dissolved. Place chicken in a large ziploc bag and pour in marinade. (You can remove the skin if you want. I do it about half the time depending on how lazy I feel.) Refrigerate for 2-8 hours.

2.      Start grill for medium heat. Mix ingredients for basting sauce and stir until sugar and salt are dissolved. If you have a squirt bottle or old worchestershire bottle, pour basting sauce in it to use while grilling. Otherwise you could use a silicone brush to brush on the basting sauce. 

3.      Place chicken pieces on the grill and discard marinade. Shake or squirt basting sauce onto each chicken piece, or use a silicone brush to add basting sauce. Grill chicken, covering as much as possible, for about five minutes. (Careful with the basting - the oil can cause flare ups on the grill, so watch out and don't go too crazy with the sauce.) Turn the chicken over, baste generously with basting sauce, and cook another five minutes. Continue cooking, rotating chicken and basting until the chicken has cooked through, about 35 minutes. Remove chicken from grill, let sit covered with foil for five minutes and serve.
Yield: 4-6 servings
