4
1 Vitamin E, capsule
2 cloves organic garlic cloves, minced or pressed
1⁄4 tablespoon sea salt
1⁄2 tablespoon ground pepper
1 tablespoon oregano
1 tablespoon herbs de provence
4 Chicken thighs or drumsticks, bone-in, skin-on
  1. Pierce the vitamin E capsule and combine with the garlic. Rub over the chicken skin, thoroughly covering all sides.

  2. Combine the salt, pepper, oregano, and herbs de Provence in a small bowl. Sprinkle the mixture over the chicken, thoroughly coating all sides of each piece.

  3. Cover and let marinate for about 5 minutes.

  4. Preheat the grill while the chicken is marinating.
     
  5. Place drumsticks on the grill first, as they take slightly longer to cook. Grill for 5 minutes then add the thighs, skin side down, and grill for 5 minutes before turning. Turn chicken (drumsticks and thighs) and finish cooking to an internal temperature of 165°F, about 7 more minutes.
