  • Drain chicken, discarding marinade. For a charcoal or gas grill, place chicken on grill rack of a covered grill directly over medium-high heat. Grill for 12 to 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170° F), turning once halfway through grilling. Transfer to a serving platter; cover with foil to keep warm.

Serve sauce over grilled chicken.

Look for crawfish tails in the freezer section of your seafood market or grocery store. If desired, substitute 8 ounces fresh or frozen peeled, deveined shrimp for the crawfish. To use shrimp, thaw shrimp, if frozen; chop.
