 Kegger Chicken

IThis easy marinade marries chicken with a windfall of flavors while you’re busy with other boating chores. Make it in the galley or at home, throw the chicken into the reefer and forget it for up to 24 hours.

12-ounce can or bottle of beer
 1 teaspoon each pepper, kosher salt, powdered ginger
 Medium onion, finely diced
 1/4 cup each grainy mustard and molasses
 2 tablespoons olive oil
 10 to 12 portions skinless, bone-in, dark meat chicken

Stand up a resealable, two gallon-size plastic bag in a large bowl to keep the bag upright.  Pour in the beer. Do not seal bag. Allow beer to go flat. Scatter pepper, ginger and salt on a cutting board and chop the onion on it. Scrape up and add to the bag with mustard, molasses and olive oil.

Holding the top of the bag in one hand, squeeze bag with the other hand to mix marinade well. Add chicken parts, seal bag and tip bag to coat chicken. Chill, turning occasionally.

Using tongs, remove chicken to a grill heated to Medium. Seal bag and discard it with the marinade. Grill chicken until it is golden brown and registers 170 degrees on an instant thermometer. Complete the meal with cold deli salads and icy drinks.

Galley Tip: save a bottle, such as a soy sauce bottle, that shakes out liquid a few drops at a time. Wash it and fill with sherry to pass at the table to splash on black beans and rice, seafood chowder or shrimp bisque.
