-lb), quartered or 1/2 c Finely chopped cucumber
Cut up 1/4 c Chopped green bell pepper
Salt and pepper 1 tb Snipped fresh cilantro
1 c Bottled salsa
Rinse chicken and pat dry. To make the chicken quarters lie flat on the
grill, break the wing, hip, and drumstick joints and twist the little
wingtips under the back. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
Grill the chicken, bone side up, on an uncovered grill directly over medium
coals for 20 minutes. Combine the salsa and lime juice. Turn the chicken
and grill for 15 to 20 minutes until tender and no longer pink. Brush often
with about 1/2 cup of the salsa mixture during the last 10 to 15 minutes.
For the vegetable sauce, combine the remaining salsa mixture, the cucumber,
green pepper, and cilantro in a small saucepan. Bring just to boiling,
then remove from heat. Serve vegetable sauce with the chicken.
Makes 4 servings.
