  • 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 Note)
  • 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.

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