Directions

The day before:
  • Sprinkle chicken with garlic salt and pepper. Brush both sides of onion slices with oil. For a charcoal grill, grill chicken and onion on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 12 to 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170°F) and onion is tender and lightly charred, turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place chicken and onion on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.) Remove from grill. Thinly slice chicken. Separate onion into rings.
