This wonderful chicken marinates for eight hours before being grilled, so it 's moist and full of flavor. The marinade is simple: Thousand Island dressing with a bit of lemon juice, paprika and garlic stirred in.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 4 pounds whole chicken
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 5 tablespoons salt
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
- 5 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup thousand island dressing
- 2 cups water
Place the sectioned chicken parts in a shallow, nonporous dish so that the pieces fit snugly.
In a separate, nonporous small bowl, combine the lemon juice, salt, paprika, ground black pepper, garlic and thousand island dressing. Mix well, pour over the chicken and add water to cover.
Cover and refrigerate, allowing the chicken to marinate for 8 hours.
Prepare an outdoor grill for indirect heat and lightly oil grate.
Grill chicken over indirect heat for about 50 minutes, or until temperature reaches 180 degrees F (80 degrees C). Discard any excess marinade.
