One of my favorite summer time meals growing up was my dad’s grilled chicken with a lemon soy sauce marinade. It’s pretty much the only way I knew BBQ chicken as a kid. It has so much flavor and is so simple to make!

Soy Sauce. Lemon Juice. Green Onion. That’s it. I’ve added my own touch with some brown sugar to give it a little sweetness, almost like a teriyaki (but not really) and this grilled chicken really comes out delicious!

Using a Whole Chicken

If you haven’t already noticed from other posts, but I’m a huge proponent of using whole chickens rather then buying them precut. Yeah it’ll take you a little more time but once you master the art of quartering a chicken, you’ll appreciate how much money you end up saving going this route.

How Long to marinade?

I definitely recommend marinading 4-6 hours or even overnight to really let the flavors set in a give you really amazing grilled chicken. However if you want to cook this same day it will still taste amazing if you let it marinate for about an hour!

Watch For Flare Ups

When I first started cooking chicken with skin on, it was almost impossible for me not to burn the skin. The problem I was facing was the temperature of my grill was too damn high! Whether it was charcoal or propane the dripping from the fat of the skin would cause a lot of flare ups from the high hit and ending up in a black sad chicken skin.

What I’ve learned is keeping grill on medium heat (around 300) helps with this issue so that I don’t have to constantly check the grill for flare ups.
