Grilled Florida-style Chicken

Elizabeth Mattice


Love this grilling sauce as it is not a red or tomato based sauce. It has been a family favorite for generations and each generation has experimented with the basic sauce to create interesting personal favorite is to add 1/2 cup of lime juice and 1/2 cup tequila in place of vinegar.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The vinegar and seasonings combine to make one flavor packed chicken. I made this just as Elizabeth posted and it's fabulous. Great for a cookout or easy dinner. But I can't wait to try her variation with the lime and tequila.

I didn't need to grill this chicken for an hour. All grills vary as do the size of chicken breasts so watch yours closely so as not to overcook.


1 c
white vinegar
1/2 c
wesson oil (canola oil is fine)
2 Tbsp
3 tsp
poultry seasoning
1/2 tsp
ground black pepper
4 large
chicken breasts for grilling (can use quarters as well)

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix all ingredients and place in a leak proof Ziploc gallon bag or covered glass dish. Marinate chicken overnight in refrigerator.
