  3. Cover and refrigerate 4-6 hours, turning occasionally.
  4. Remove Chicken to a sheet pan fitted with a wire rack. Pat Chicken dry and set aside for about twenty minutes to dry further and come up to temperature.
  5. In a small saucepan wisk together Clarified Butter, Lemon juice Worcestershire Sauce and 2-3 Tbls of the reserved marinade. Heat over medium heat until just bubbling, Reduce heat and keep warm on very low heat.
  6. Prepare your grill: Put enough charcoal on one side of your grill to achieve a med hot fire. Keep enough space with no coals to be able to transfer meat from the hot side to the cool side. Make sure grates are clean and well oiled.
  7. Season Chicken with Salt and Pepper. Start thighs and legs about 10 mins before the breasts. Place Chicken skin side down on the medium hot side of the grill.
  8. Sear only long enough to get good grill marks. (about 3- 5 minutes per side.) Transfer Chicken to the cool side, baste all sides with the lemon/garlic butter sauce and dust lightly with cinnamon. Cover and roast about an additional 25 – 30 min. basting occasionally.
  9. Garnish with Parsley and Lemon wedges. Pass Garlic Sauce separately
