Dixie Grilled Chicken
from Atlanta Cooknotes

6 broilers, halved and washed
salt and pepper, to taste
olive or vegetable oil
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon pepper
2-1/2 cups vinegar
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter (see Cooknote)
2 teaspoons celery seed
2 tablespoons salt
1/2 to 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice

Prepare grill. Lightly sprinkle salt and pepper on chicken, and rub with oil. In a saucepan, combine remaining ingredients and heat thoroughly. When the bed of coals is glowing, place chicken on the grill. Baste and turn frequently with sauce for one-and-one-half hours.

Cooknote: The peanut butter melts in the sauce and helps bind it to the chicken.
