Using your clean fingers, massage the marinade into the chicken, making sure to push some up under the skin. Cover chicken with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight.

3 Place the chicken on the grill and cook, turning occasionally, until the chickens browns on all sides, about 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer chicken pieces to indirect heat and continue cooking, turning occasionally, until chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes. Transfer chicken to serving platter. Serve.
