Portuguese Barbecued Chicken is perfect for our first cook out.  Heat up the grill and let’s get cooking!


  • 2 lbs. chicken pieces
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tsp grated lemon rind
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp hot pepper sauce
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced


  • Place chicken in a large zip-lock bag. Combine wine, lemon rind and juice, tomato paste, oil, paprika, hot pepper sauce, salt and garlic; pour over chicken, turning to coat. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or for up to 24 hours, turning occasionally.
