Here's a great recipe for chicken from the grill that doesn't use BBQ sauce. It's a great way to take some carbs out of your meal.
6 pounds bone-in skin-on chicken pieces
Brine for Chicken or Pork (Tuesday's recipe)
1 stick butter, melted
1/2 cup lime juice
1/2 cup cilantro
2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
1 tablespoon granulated onion
1 1/2 teaspoons granulated garlic
1 1/2 teaspoons Creole seasoning
Rinse chicken pieces; place in a large stock pot and cover with Brine for Chicken or Pork. Keep submerged with a salad plate weighted down with something heavy if necessary; refrigerate for 24 hours.
Whisk together butter, lime juice, cilantro, Italian seasoning, granulated onion and garlic, and Creole seasoning. Place chicken pieces in a single layer on large rimmed baking sheets; pour butter mixture over, turning to coat. Allow to sit at room temperature, turning occasionally, for 45 minutes.
Heat a grill to medium heat ( 350-400℉). Cook chicken, covered, until a met thermometer registers 165℉ at the thickest part, 45 to 50 minutes, turn chicken once.
