  1. Mix all sauce ingredients in a mixing bowl. You will end up with a tar-like substance in the bottom of the bowl and not all the oil will mix in. Don't panic.

  2. Using both hands, scoop up a small amount of the mixture along with a little oil and massage it vigorously into the chicken like your life depends on that bird being relaxed.

  3. Grill until fully cooked and serve.
