Grilled Garlic Chicken

    30 min

    This recipe works well with any cut of chicken, skin-on or off. I prefer it skin-on, as the skin crisps up perfectly under the grill and helps keep the chicken tender.

    I added 1/2 tsp ground coriander and oxo chicken cube on the mixture,The coriander was added by accident thinking it was black pepper but it worked fantastic  -  29 Dec 2011

    This is one of our new fave's. Instead of broiling it, I bake it at 375 for about 45 minutes,stirring every 15 minutes or so. This way, you don't have to deal with smoking! This gives you time to prepare rice or noodles and you've got a fantastic meal ready in less than an hour. Yummy!!  -  20 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
