Sara Moulton's BBQ Chicken
An Easy No-Frills Summer Dish
You'll have this simple bbq chicken recipe done in no time. Make your own bbq sauce or use store bought.
Preheat grill so that one side is hot and the other is medium.
Toss the chicken pieces with the oil and several hefty pinches of salt in a large bowl.
Place the chicken, skin side down, on the hotter section of the grill. Cook until the skin starts to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Move the pieces to the cooler section of the grill and continue grilling, until the skin is thoroughly browned, 5 to 7 minutes more.
Turn the pieces over and move them back to the hotter section of the grill. Brown the second side well, 3 to 5 minutes, then move the pieces back to the cooler side of the grill to finish cooking, about another 5 to 7 minutes.
During the last 5 minutes of cooking brush all the pieces generously with half of the sauce. Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes before serving. Serve with the remaining sauce on the side.
