Ingredients

  • Chicken:
  • 8 (8-ounce) bone-in chicken breast halves
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
  • Cooking spray
  • Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • Dash of salt

Preparation


Preheat grill to medium-hot using both burners.

To prepare chicken, loosen skin from breasts by inserting fingers, gently pushing between skin and meat. Combine salt and next 4 ingredients (salt through chile powder); rub under loosened skin.

Turn left burner off (leave right burner on). Coat grill rack with cooking spray. Place chicken on grill rack over right burner; grill 5 minutes on each side or until browned. Move chicken to grill rack over left burner. Cover and cook 35 minutes or until done, turning once. Remove chicken from grill; discard skin.

To prepare sauce, combine mayonnaise and remaining ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Serve with chicken.



    The chicken is seared over direct heat then moved to the cooler side of the grill. If using a charcoal grill, stack the coals on the right side of the grill.
  • Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 breast half and about 2 tablespoons sauce)
