    Remove and discard skin from all chicken pieces except wings. Add all chicken pieces to large resealable plastic bag; place in shallow dish. Bring 2 cups water, lemon peel, salt, garlic and herbs to boil in saucepan. Remove from heat; pour into large bowl. Add remaining water, dressing and ice; stir until ice is melted. Pour over chicken; seal bag. Refrigerate overnight. Remove chicken from dressing mixture; discard dressing mixture. Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Let stand at room temperature 20 min. Meanwhile, heat greased barbecue to medium-high heat. Grill chicken 2 min. on each side. Reduce barbecue to medium heat. Grill chicken 8 to 18 min. or until done (165°F), turning occasionally and removing chicken pieces from barbecue when done. (Smaller pieces will cook more quickly. See tip for suggested grill times.)
