Pollo de Barcelona (Barcelona Chicken)


Everyone's favorite grilled chicken. The subtle flavor of cumin-infused honey is irresistible, and this dish is great right off the grill or served cold for a picnic. Use Caution: The oil in the marinade can cause flare-ups and the honey easily burns. The extra care required is well worth creating chicken with amazing flavor!
1 chicken about 3 to 4 pounds, cut into serving pieces
1/3 cup olive oil
1/2 cup honey
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons sherry
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Make the marinade in a microwave-proof bowl by mixing the olive oil, honey, and garlic. Microwave 1 to 2 minutes until honey mixes well with oil.

2 Mix in remaining ingredients (except chicken) and allow to cool.

3 Place chicken in heavy plastic bag or glass bowl and pour in marinade. Toss to coat all pieces of chicken. Refrigerate and marinate at least 4 hours; overnight is preferable.

4 Prepare grill with indirect or low heat. Remove chicken from marinade, allowing excess to run off. Place on grill and cook for 30 to 35 minutes, turning often to prevent burning. Serve.
