Step 1

In a small bowl, whisk the first five ingredients until blended; stir
in onions. Pour 1-1/2 cups marinade into a large resealable plastic
bag. Add chicken; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate overnight.
Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.

Prepare grill for indirect heat. Drain chicken, discarding marinade
in bag. Place chicken on grill rack, skin side up. Grill, covered,
over indirect medium heat 15 minutes. Turn; grill 15-20 minutes
longer or until a thermometer reads 180°, basting occasionally
with reserved marinade. Yield: 8 servings.
