Grilled Chicken with Aunt Peggy's Grilling Sauce

I'm using this Paula Dean recipe tonight on my chicken. My alterations to follow.

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter
2 lemons, juiced
2 (2 1/2 to 3-pound) chickens split into 2 halves, to yield 4 halves
House Seasoning, recipe follows

Heat butter in a skillet. Add the Worcestershire sauce, peanut butter, and lemon juice, and blend well. Simmer for 10 minutes.

Prepare grill for direct grilling. When coals are white hot, spread them evenly and place grate on grill to heat. Spray grate with cooking spray to avoid sticking. Rub chickens thoroughly with House Seasoning. Place chicken halves onto your grill to begin the cooking process, this could take up to 1 hour depending on your coals. Turn as often as necessary to prevent burning. About 10 to 15 minutes before serving, start basting with the grilling sauce on both sides, turning constantly. Chicken is done when leg moves easily at joints.

House Seasoning:
1 cup salt
1/4 cup black pepper
1/4 cup garlic powder

3 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Creamy peanut butter
