Celiac.com 07/28/2015 - Chicken is marinated in yogurt, buttermilk and herbs, then grilled outside for a tangy, tender treat that's sure to make a bit hit at your next grill session.
- 12 cloves of fresh garlic
- 2 whole chickens
- 3 cups buttermilk
- 1 cup fresh whole milk yogurt
- ½ cup fresh rosemary, gently crushed
- ½ cup fresh thyme, minced
- ½ cup fresh oregano, chopped, or 1 tablespoon dried oregano
- ½ tablespoon onion powder
- kosher salt
- freshly ground pepper
- vegetable oil, for grilling
Combine buttermilk, yogurt, onion powder, garlic, herbs, 2 tablespoons salt, and 2 teaspoons pepper.
Clean and cut each chicken into 8 pieces, then divide between two large plastic food storage bags. Add marinade to each bag, and move chicken around until it's well-coated.
Seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight, turning chicken occasionally.
Remove chicken from refrigerator 30 minutes before grilling.
Heat grill to medium with direct and indirect heat zones. Brush grates with oil.
Remove chicken from marinade, and pat dry with paper towels and place on a plate. Discard marinade.
Grill breast halves, thighs, and drumsticks, skin side down, over direct heat for about 10 minutes.
Flip, move to cooler grill area, and cook, covered, about 10-15 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of thighs registers 165F.
Grill wings over direct heat, turning as needed, until cooked through, about 15 minutes.
