Memphis Barbecue Chicken

Lynette !


I've been trying different barbecue chicken recipes and found this one. Personally, I season the chicken with some greek seasoning or salt and pepper before grilling. I also do half skin on and half skin off to satisfy all diners. You can make the sauce ahead of time, or while grilling.
