Beer Marinated Grilled Chicken

Prepare this recipe the night before, so the chicken can absorb the flavors. If you want a mild flavored chicken, use a pilsener-style beer, use a dark stout for a rich malty flavor.

Beer Marinated Grilled Chicken

Marinade
2 cups beer
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
12 cloves garlic, sliced
2 bay leaves

Chicken

1 (3-1/2 to 4 pound) broiler chicken, quartered

Directions
For the marinade, combine beer, oil, mustard, paprika, and pepper in a large non-metal bowl; whisk until well combined. Stir in onion, garlic, and bay leaves. Add chicken, turning to coat. Cover with plastic wrap. Marinate, refrigerated, 6 to 24 hours, turning chicken occasionally during marinade time.

Preheat charcoal or gas grill and lightly coat rack with oil or cooking spray. Remove chicken from marinade, reserving marinade. Place chicken quarters, bone side down, on grill 4 to 6 inches from heat source. Grill chicken over medium-high heat about 12 minutes, brushing occasionally with marinade. Turn chicken and continue grilling and basting 12 minutes. Discard marinade. Continue grilling chicken about 15 minutes more, turning the chicken occasionally, until chicken quarters are golden brown and the juices no longer run pink (160°F on meat thermometer). Transfer chicken to serving platter. 4 servings.
