TUSCAN LEMON CHICKEN
Tuscan Lemon Chicken
To continue on with my Tuscan Grill Party recipes, this dish is one that's perfect for summer. This Tuscan Lemon Chicken is ridiculously easy to make and is equally delicious. The best part is that it requires minimal ingredients - most of which you probably already have on hand. Chicken is marinated with lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper before grilling to perfection and served with grilled lemon. This dish captures all the simplicity of Tuscan cuisine and allows the fresh flavors to shine... The recipe is originally from Ina Garten. When I saw her prepare this dish on the Food Network Channel the other day, she used a whole chicken which she spatchcocked (where the backbone of a whole chicken is removed and then the chicken is flattened.) Once spatchcocked, she marinated the chicken and then grilled. I didn't have a whole chicken on hand and so I used chicken quarters which I cut up myself instead. Doing so made it easy for me to marinate, grill and serve. However, feel free to try Ina's spatchcocked version with the link provided.
