2 Prep and heat the grill: Heat your grill to medium-high heat (about 425°F) with two zones for indirect and direct cooking. Oil the grill grates with a tong using a small folded piece of paper towel dipped in oil.

3 Grill the chicken: Arrange the chicken skin-side down over the high-heat section of the grill and cook for 10 minutes.  Turnover the chicken and keep over the hot section for another 8 to 10 minutes.

Transfer the chicken to the indirect section of the grill (this helps avoid overcooking) and cook the chicken until it reaches a safe internal temperature of 165°F in the thickest part of the meat.
