Ingredients

2
4-pound chickens, cut up
1
bunch scallions, minced
6
garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
2
cups
orange juice
1/4
cup
cider vinegar
2
teaspoons
dried oregano
2
teaspoons
kosher salt
1/2
teaspoon
crushed red pepper flakes

Directions

  1. Place the chicken pieces in 1 or 2 large resealable plastic bags and add the rest of the ingredients. Shake to mix. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight.
  2. Fire up a grill to medium heat or until the coals are lightly covered with ash. Cook the chicken skin-side up for 20 minutes. Turn and cook an additional 15 to 20 minutes or until the juices run clear when a thigh is pricked with a fork; it should register 180° F on an instant-read thermometer. Alternatively, roast the chicken uncovered in a preheated 400° F oven for 35 to 45 minutes.
