Grilled Honey Chicken


Very good! I used thighs and broiled in the oven, I will make this again in the summer on the BBQ. Be sure to use the glaze.
It is rubbed with a easy and fabulous spice paste and then basted with a tangy honey glaze, I am sure on the grill it would give this a double dose of flavour, and easy to double for a summer BBQ.

2 Tbs. olive oil
2-1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. sweet paprika, preferably Hungarian
1 tsp. light brown sugar
1 tsp. chopped fresh oregano, I used 1/2 teaspoon dried.
3/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. chipotle chile powder
1 clove garlic, minced
1 whole chicken, butterflied, patted dry or 4 legs and 4 thighs.

Season the Chicken:
In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, salt, chili powder, paprika, brown sugar, oregano, black pepper, chipotle powder, and garlic. Rub all over the chicken and between the breast meat and skin. Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours or let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Set aside 1/4 cup of the honey glaze for drizzling over the cooked chicken.

Gas-Grill Instructions:
Heat all burners of a gas grill to medium low. Brush the grill grates with a stiff wire brush and then wipe with a lightly oiled wad of paper towels.

Set the chicken, skin side down, on the grill, cover, and cook until it’s nicely browned and easily releases from the grates, 5 to 10 minutes. Watch carefully during this stage and if a flare-up occurs, move the chicken away from the flames until they die down. If necessary, squirt the flames with a little water to quench them. Spoon a teaspoon of glaze on each piece. Turn chicken and glaze again, don’t forget to save 1/4 cup of glaze for drizzling over the cooked chicken.

Honey glaze
1/4 cup honey
1 Tbs. soy sauce
1 Tbs. ketchup
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. vinegar
1/2 to 1 tsp. Asian chile paste, like Sriracha
In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients. Set aside 1/4 cup of the glaze for drizzling over the cooked chicken.
