My dad was never much of a cook in the kitchen. Not that he was bad at it, he just never spent a lot of time in there perfecting his skills. Mom did all the cooking. Until summer hit that is. That’s when Dad put on his apron and fired up the grill. He could work magic with that thing. It didn’t matter what the meat was he was cooking, he did it perfectly. There were some meats that I wouldn’t normally eat, but if he did it on the grill, I was going to be the first in line to put it on my plate. On of his most famous dishes was his grilled chicken. The marinade he put on it was something I could have eaten plain I think!
It was a lot like this recipe from Just A Pinch. I was actually pretty surprised when I found it on there. I had to call my dad and ask him again about his recipe, and they were almost identical.
Since I had the list in my hand, I decided to make it for dinner later in the week. My son, who never eats chicken anything besides nuggets, gobbled down a whole chicken leg and came back for more!
When we had a few family members on my wife’s side over for dinner one night, I decided that I would make them up Dad’s famous chicken on the grill. That way the wife could visit while I took care of the cooking for once. She was so appreciative of the work I did and she had a great time with her loved ones. They couldn’t stop raving about how good the meal was. They were surprised that I even knew how to cook. I had to write down a copy of the recipe for my father-in-law. He wanted to make it for some of his friends later on.
