Take all of the ingredients except the chicken and put in your blender or food processor. Blend/process until smooth.
Marinate the chicken with the mixture for 4-8 hours.
Set up your grill for a medium heat (350f) direct cook. That takes about 1 chimney full of Kingsford Charcoal for my charcoal grill. (The grill I use other than our two Big Green Eggs, which use lump coal.)
Grill for 8-12 minutes per side. I spend much more time turning these throughout the cooking time compared to a steak when I say the less turning the better. Don''t be afraid of a little char but keep them turned as needed.
Remove when the thighs are 170 F and the breasts are 160 F. Normally this will take 8-12 minutes as noted above but on a colder, breezy day it took almost 30 minutes total grilling time to get the biggest pieces to the proper internal temperature. That''s why it is important to cook by temps, not time.

BigOven Tip: Easily make this ahead of time! Chicken can be marinaded up to 24 hours in advance.
