Cajun Butter-Basted Grilled Chicken

Cajun Butter-Basted Grilled Chicken


Spice up your grilling game with Cajun Butter-Basted Grilled Chicken. A flavorful and fiery delight for your taste buds. I came up with the idea for this chicken in an effort to create a meat dish to go with the black beans and rice I was planning for dinner. (I didn't have quite enough beans to make them the main course!) This chicken turned out so good... sweet, spicy, and sticky. A perfect complement to the beans and rice.

Cajun Butter-Basted Grilled Chicken



Cook time: 40 Min  Prep time: 5 Min  Serves: 4-6
Ingredients
2-3 lb chicken pieces (skin removed, if desired)
1/2 c butter
1/3 c honey
2 Tbsp minced fresh parsley or cilantro
1 Tbsp Cajun seasoning
juice of 1/2 lemon
Directions
Test Kitchen Tips: Cooking times will vary based on the cut of the chicken. We suggest using a meat thermometer and cooking low and slow.
1. Combine melted butter and honey.
2. Add parsley, Cajun seasoning, and lemon juice. Whisk until smooth.
3. Preheat the grill. Place the chicken pieces on a platter and brush the top side with the basting sauce.
4. Place basted side down on the grill. Grill for about 10 minutes, until browned. Baste and turn to the other side. Grill for 10 more minutes until the other side is browned. Turn the grill to low, or move chicken pieces to an unheated area of the grill, and cook over indirect heat with the lid down for about 15-20 more minutes. Baste and turn the chicken a couple of more times during cooking. Cook until chicken reaches 180 F internal temp.
