New York Grilled Chicken

Every time we would visit my Mom's family in New York, my Aunt Barb would put on a big BBQ with this chicken as the focal point. I get raves whenever I serve it. It disappears!

1 egg
1/2 c. oil
1 c. cider vinegar OR
1 c. lemon juice, fresh squeezed OR
1/2 c. of each
2 T. salt
1 tsp. sugar
*1/4 tsp. thyme, fresh or dried
*1/4 tsp. sage, fresh or dried
*1/4 tsp. marjoram, fresh or dried
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 cut up fryer chickens OR
8-10 lbs. chicken pieces (legs, thighs, breast)

In large container suitable for marinating, beat egg with whisk or fork. Add oil and beat again. Egg mixture will thicken. Add vinegar, salt, sugar, thyme, sage, marjoram, and pepper. Blend well. Add chicken pieces to coat. Seal container and refrigerate. Marinate at least 30 minutes to overnight. Grill chicken, turning occasionally, until juices run clear.

*For an East Indian flavor, substitute 1 T. fresh chopped mint , 1 clove minced garlic, and 2 T. plain yogurt for thyme, sage, and marjoram.
