This was a National Chicken Cooking Contest winner.

2 chickens, cut in half lengthwise

1 cup butter or margarine (2 sticks), melted

2 envelopes (6-ounces each) Italian salad dressing mix

1/2 cup fresh lime juice

1 teaspoon salt or to taste

Place chicken in a shallow dish. In a measuring cup combine remaining ingredients and pour over chicken; cover and refrigerate. Melt butter or margarine in saucepan. Marinate turning occasionally, for 3 to 4 hours or overnight. Grill chicken 5 to 6 inches above medium-hot coals for 35 to 45 minutes or until cooked through. Turn and baste with marinade every 10 to 15 minutes.
