Garlic Magic Mayo Cheesy Grilled Chicken


8 Maple Leaf Prime® Bone In Chicken Thighs or Legs

1 cup HEINZ SERIOUSLY GOOD® Mayonnaise or HEINZ® Garlic Aioli

½ tbsp garlic, minced

½ tsp pepper

½ heaping tsp paprika


1 ½ cup KRAFT® Italian Shredded Cheese Blend


Place Maple Leaf Prime® chicken in a large zip lock bag with HEINZ SERIOUSLY GOOD® Mayonnaise (or HEINZ® Garlic Aioli) and seasonings. Massage chicken in bag well to coat. Refrigerate for 2 hrs or up to 24 hrs.

Preheat one side of grill to medium high heat. Prepare a baking sheet lined with tin foil.

Using tongs place chicken onto the grill shaking away any residual marinade.

Grill chicken for 3 to 4 minutes per side and transfer to baking sheet. Place baking sheet on side of grill that has not been heated. Keep heat on opposite side of grill on.

Close lid and cook on residual heat for 18 to 20 minutes or until an internal temperature of 165°F is reached.

Divide KRAFT® cheese and sprinkle on top of chicken. Close lid and allow cheese to melt – approximately 3 to 4 minutes. Serve immediately.

Tips: Make it a meal! Serve with a garden salad featuring KRAFT® Balsamic dressing.
