Grilled Lemon Chicken

Makes 6 servings

A simple lemon-butter sauce that's brushed onto the chicken during grilling yields scrumptious summery flavor.


  • 1/3 cup white distilled vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons steak sauce
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • One 3 to 3 1/2-pound chicken, cut up


Heat the grill. Bring the vinegar, butter, oil, lemon juice and steak sauce to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Remove from the heat. Stir in the lemon peel and salt.

Grill the chicken, covered, over medium heat or coals, 10 minutes. Brush with the lemon mixture. Turn; cook an additional 20 to 30 minutes, or until the chicken juices run clear, brushing and turning the chicken every 10 minutes.
