Ingredients

1
chicken, 3 to 3 1/2 lbs., cut up
1 dash(es)
salt
1 dash(es)
black pepper

BASTING SAUCE

2 Tbsp

2 clove
garlic, minced or pressed
3 Tbsp
fresh chopped basil or 2 tsp. dried basil leaves

Step-By-Step

1Cut off excess fat from chicken pieces.

2Loosen the skin away from the meat (this helps the basting sauce to reach the meat underneath).

3Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.

4Mix together and blend well the oil, tomato ketchup or chili sauce, lemon juice, the garlic and the herbs used.

5Place chicken pieces on rack.

6Brush on both sides with basting sauce.

7Grill chicken for 12 to 15 minutes on one side, brushing with basting sauce from time to time.

8Turn chicken over.

9Brush again with sauce.

10Grill chicken for another 12 to 15 minutes or until chicken is done and juices run clear when pierced with a fork.

11Serve immediately with crusty bread and a tossed green salad, tomatoes and crispy baked potato wedges.
