The wost part: Cleaning the Chicken. The flavor is best when you buy bone-in chicken with skin. Remove all the skin/fat and rinse in cold water.
Put 2 large sheets of heavy duty foil on your counter. Layer onions and chicken and season with pepper, minced or chopped garlic and thyme. DO NOT USE ANYTHING CONTAINING SALT.
Wrap up the chicken by folding the foil over the chicken (creating a handle).Make sure to fold the foil in a way that makes the package water-tight so that no juice with seep out.
Preheat grill to approx. 300 degrees and place package in the middle of the grill. Close and wait one hour.
This is what the chicken looks like after the hour is up. Remove the onions and save the juice in a bowl. In the bowl of juice add your favorite BBQ sauce and mix together. After the sauce is mixed put the chicken in the same bowl and return to the grill to add a little crunch on the chicken- basting frequently.
We like to save the excess sauce just in case we need more during dinner. This makes the most perfect moist chicken. Delicious!
