Oh so smoky and full of flavor, this is delicious grilled chicken. The sauce is sweet and tangy with a slight kick. It's the perfect complement to the chicken. The skin gets slightly caramelized and crisp. Inside the meat is nice and juicy. A tasty way to serve grilled chicken.

How To Make papa's grilled chicken with a twist

Test Kitchen Tips
If the temperature gets too hot while grilling, slightly prop open the lid until it comes to temperature.
  • Drying chicken pieces.
    Wash and pat dry your chicken. Cut into pieces and set aside.
  • Butter, margarine, Worcestershire sauce, A-1 sauce, garlic powder, smashed garlic, and chipotle pepper in a saucepan.
    In a small saucepan, melt together 1 stick of butter and 1/2 cup of margarine. Add 1/2 cup of Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 cup A-1 sauce, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1 smashed clove fresh garlic, and 1 chipotle pepper to the butter mixture.
  • Sauce simmering on the stove.
    Bring this mixture to a boil. Quickly reduce to a simmer for about 15 minutes until the sauce slightly thickens.
  • Preheating the grill.
    Set your grill to medium heat.
  • Pieces of chicken placed on the grill.
    Put the chicken pieces on the grill skin side up and baste the chicken with the sauce. Close the lid to the grill keeping the temp between 350-375 degrees.
  • Basting the chicken as it cooks.
    Flip the chicken every 15-20 minutes and basting it every time you flip it. Baste the chicken with the sauce from begging to end of cooking time, rotating & flipping chicken pieces every few beers you drink. Your chicken should take about 45 minutes to 1 hour to cook or until the thickest part reaches 165 degrees.
  • Grilled chicken resting.
    Let the chicken rest 10 minutes before cutting it. Be safe, eat well, have fun!
