How can you make my first Mexican Roadside Chicken with Green Onions using our Grilled chicken recipes 

  • To make your Grilled chicken recipes : Mexican Roadside chicken with green onion, first light your charcoal grill to medium high. While the charcoal grill is hitting, mix all the ingredients in a bowl. And rub them with your hand nicely.
  • When your charcoal grill is fully heated and covered in gray ash, pour coals out and place them on one side of the charcoal grate, keeping the other side empty. Place the chicken over the cool side of the grill, skin side down, and brush exposed side with the wet rub. Continuously spin the chicken over and over and brush the other side with the wipe. Cover your grill and cook this will add some extra flavor in your grilled chicken. Basting occasionally with any remaining rub, at 350 degrees until an instant read thermometer reads 165 degrees when inserted into the thickest part of the breast, about 45 minutes.
  • Remove the grilled chicken from the grill and allow to rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
