How To Grill Whole Cut-Up Chicken

Grilled whole cut-up chicken is a perfect summer outdoor meal.  This chicken has crispy spiced skin with beautiful grillmarks and a deep grilled flavor.  Make your neighbors jealous by grilling this delicious chicken for dinner!

I buy the chicken that’s already been cut up at a supermarket – they have it in the meat section next to whole chickens, and it’s labeled “whole cut-up chicken”.  I want to make my life easy so I don’t have to spend time on cutting the chicken up 🙂  A four-burner grill has enough room for two whole cut-up chickens, so I just buy two – it’s as easy to grill two chickens as one, and I might as well have leftovers.  You can always use some more grilled chicken the next day!

Making grilled whole cut-up chicken is pretty easy.  All you need to do is take the chicken out of the package, rub it with the seasonings and throw it on the grill.  I just use packaged spice mix labeled “chicken seasoning” and apply is generously.  My favorite packaged seasoning is Weber Kick’n Chicken seasoning – it’s amazing! Don’t skimp on seasoning for a great tasting chicken!  Cooking outside in a nice weather is a lot of fun, and eating this freshly grill chicken is such a pleasure!
