Honey Mint Glazed Grilled Chicken
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 4-5lbs pound of chicken, (use any cut)
- freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2-3 tablespoons water
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
1 Marinate the chicken: Place chicken pieces in a bowl. Mix vinegar with olive oil and pour over chicken. Turn chicken pieces so that all are coated with the simple marinade. Let marinate for 30 minutes.
2 Make the honey mint glaze: In a small bowl mix honey, mint, and just enough water for a good basting consistency. Set aside for glazing the chicken.
3 Grill the chicken: Prepare grill for medium-high heat. Remove chicken pieces from marinade. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Place chicken pieces on the hot grill, skin side up. Cook for approximately 25-40 minutes, covered, turning every 7 or 8 minutes.
4 Baste with the glaze: For the last 5-10 minutes of cooking, baste all sides with the honey mint mixture. The chicken is done when the juices run clear (not pink) when a knife tip is inserted into both the chicken breast and thigh, about 165°F.
