Classic Charcoal Grilled Chicken

2 to 2 1/2 pounds cut up chicken

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup olive oil

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 large cloves garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Arrange chicken in 9-by-13-by-2-inch dish. In small bowl, combine remaining ingredients; pour half mixture over chicken; cover and refrigerate chicken at least 1 hour or overnight. Cover and refrigerate bowl of remaining marinade for basting. Drain chicken; discard liquid.

Wear a hot-mitt and use tongs to arrange medium-hot briquets in a ring, leaving 12 inches in center free of coals. Grill chicken on covered grill, skin-side down, in center of grid, directly over coal-free area for 25 minutes. Baste with reserved marinade. Turn. Cook 20 to 25 minutes or until no longer pink at bone.

Yield: 6 servings
