The Perfectly Grilled Citrus Chicken

The Perfectly Grilled Citrus ChicakenI am on a citrus kick! I know that it is December but I still love to get my grill going.

Ingredients
4 pounds bone-in chicken (I like leg portions)
1 orange, juiced
1 lime, juiced
1 lemon, juiced
3 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 shallot, minced
1 tablespoon celery seeds
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons freshly cracked black pepper

Directions
Combine together the ingredients and marinate overnight in a food safe plastic bag with minimal air in the bag.

Turn the grill on to high. Remove the chicken from the marinade and place the chicken on the grill and lower the heat to low.

Turn after 15 minutes. Allow to cook for an additional 25-35 minutes until fully cooked. The juices will run clear and the center fully cooked. Remove from the heat and serve.

Oven Directions
Combine together the ingredients and marinate overnight in a food safe plastic bag with minimal air in the bag.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Remove the chicken from the marinade and bake the chicken for 45 minutes then flip and bake for an additional 25-30 minutes until fully cooked.
