Grilled Five Ingredient Chicken Menu


With just five ingredients, you can make a delicious and easy Grilled Five Ingredient Chicken Menu. Prepare everything in the morning, then when you come home, microwave and grill your food to perfection. Use Fajita Seasoning Mix in this dinner.

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: 6 servings


  • 2 tablespoons Fajita Seasoning Mix
  • 4 pounds frying chicken, cut up, skinned
  • 6 ears corn on the cob
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup salsa


Sprinkle chicken with 1 tablespoon fajita seasoning mix; rub into chicken well and refrigerate for 1 hour. Remove silk from corn and smooth husks back over corn. Place corn in bowl full of ice water and soak for 60 minutes. Combine 1 tablespoon fajita seasoning and butter and mix well; cover and refrigerate.

Prepare and preheat grill, building a two-level fire with one hotter side with more coals and another cooler side with fewer coals.

Place chicken to grill on cooler side. Place corn on grill over hot side, cover, and cook for 10 minutes. Turn chicken and cook for 15-20 minutes longer, turning occasionally and brushing with salsa, until chicken is thoroughly cooked (160 degrees F) and juices run clear. You may need to remove the chicken, especially white white meat, if it's done before the dark meat. Cover cooked chicken with foil. Discard remaining salsa.

Serve chicken and corn with the seasoned butter.
