Grilled Chicken with Butter, Brown Sugar and Rosemary Baste






  1. Rinse chicken pieces and pat dry with paper towels. Place them on a tray or platter and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Baste: In a small saucepan, heat the butter and brown sugar over low heat until melted, stirring frequently.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and immediately stir in the rosemary and balsamic vinegar. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.
  4. Brush the chicken pieces generously with the baste.
  5. Grill covered, skin-side down, over medium-high heat on a gas grill or medium-hot charcoals. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until the skins are lightly browned. Baste and turn the chicken pieces over. Continue cooking the chicken over indirect heat, basting and turning occasionally until cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes for wings and breasts, and 30 to 35 minutes for legs and thighs.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings

Option: Baste and grill boneless pork loin chops over medium-high heat on a gas grill, or medium-hot charcoals for 3 to 5 minutes each side.
