Fresh off the grill, this chicken is crisp and garlicky with a satisfying char. Dressed up with seasonings, sauces, and vegetables, the leftovers are so versatile, they’re easily transformed from “basic ingredient” to a meal worthy of licking your plate clean.
Preheat a gas grill with all burners on high and the lid closed, about 10 minutes.
Place the chicken on a large platter or baking sheet in a single layer, smooth side facing up. Sprinkle generously with salt, pepper, and garlic powder, then add just enough paprika for a little kick. Flip the chicken and season the other side.
Place the chicken smooth side down on the heated grill and close the lid. Cook 4-5 minutes, then flip and cook an additional 4 minutes with the lid closed. The chicken is cooked when the juices run clear, and it has turned toasty brown on both sides.
