Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Poke surface of chicken all over with a knife or fork. Rub chicken pieces on all sides with cut surfaces of lemons, squeezing to release some of the juice; reserve remaining juice for grilling

  • Combine salt, garlic, paprika, and pepper in a bowl. Brush chicken with 1/2 of the melted butter; sprinkle with 1/2 of the seasoning mix.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Cook chicken on the preheated grill for 7 to 10 minutes. Flip, squeeze remaining lemon juice over chicken, brush with remaining butter, and sprinkle with the rest of the seasonings. Continue to grill until no longer pink in the centers and juices run clear, 8 to 10 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • Sprinkle chicken with sugar just before serving. Grill cooked chicken for 2 minutes more. Serve.

Cook's Notes:

You can use margarine instead of butter and 6 tablespoons lemon juice instead of 2 whole lemons.

If using the George Foreman Grill, cut cooking time in half.

This was very flavorful and delicious! I do not think the sugar added anything to it and would leave it off next time. Great recipe for grilling chicken! Read More

This recipe makes a delisous grilled chicken, moist and flavourful. I too left off the sugar at the end, certainly didn't need it. Read More
