Spice-Rubbed Smoke-Roasted Chicken
The classic roast chicken moves onto the grill, with a spice rub to give it extra kick.

Grilled Buttermilk Chicken
When you soak chicken in a buttermilk brine for extra moist and tender results and add subtle Indian-inspired spices, this dish really becomes something special.

Tequila-Marinated Chicken Fajitas
Tequila, orange juice, lime juice, and chipotle peppers add kick to this Mexican outdoor dinner party favorite.

Wine-Brined Grilled Chicken
Dry white wine is the key to the delicate flavor achieved in this simple recipe.

Chicken Piri-Piri
This Sunset favorite is based on a spicy grilled Portuguese dish, piri-piri is a small hot chili. Traditionally, piri-piri includes a splash of lemon and a hint of garlic with its roundup of herbs and spices; we're more generous with both in our version.

Grilled Chicken and Nectarine Salad
The combination of barbecued chicken, sweet nectarines, tangy goat cheese, and toasted pecans makes for a great and speedy entrée salad.

Brick-Grilled Chicken
Want moist and succulent grilled chicken with deliciously crispy skin? Try brick-grilling. This translates into whole chicken, cut open and flattened, marinated, and then grilled under a weight. This old technique is designed to produce juicy meat and rich brown skin, and it definitely delivers.

Grilled Chipotle-Chicken Quesadillas
Stuff your quesadillas with sour cream, spicy chipotles, and grilled chicken, and you'll have a new family favorite. Grilling adds a mildly smoky note, the perfect complement to big flavors like lime, cilantro, and chile.
