Ingredients

1
whole chicken, 3-4 pounds
3 clove
garlic, peeled and quartered
1 c
fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, loosely packed
1/4 c
olive oil, extra virgin
1 Tbsp
fresh rosemary leaves
1 Tbsp
lemon zest
2 Tbsp
fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp
kosher salt
1 1/2 tsp
herbes de provence
1 tsp
freshly ground pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Remove nad discard giblets and neck from the chicken. Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Place chicken, breast side down, on a cutting board. Cut the chicken, using kitchen shears, along both sides of the backbone, separating the backbone from the chicken. Discard the backbone.
2
Open the chicken as you would a book. Turn the chicken, breast side up, and press firmly against breastbone with the heel of your hand until the bone cracks. Tuck the wing tips under. Place chicken in a baking dish or pan.
3
Pulse the garlic and the next 8 ingredients in a food processor until the mixture forms a thick paste. Reserve half of the paste. Rub the remaining half of the paste on both sides of the chicken. Cover the chicken with plastic wrap and chill 1 hour.
4
Heat one side of the grill to 300° to 350° (medium) heat; leave other side unlit. Place the chicken, breast side down, over the lit side of the grill; top with a piece of aluminum foil. Place a cast-iron skillet on the foil-topped chicken to flatten. Grill, covered with grill lid, 10 to 15 minutes or until the chicken is browned.
5
Remove the skillet and foil. Turn the chicken over, and transfer to the unlit side of the grill. Grill, covered with grill lid, 45 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest portion of the breast registers 165°. Remove chicken from the grill, and let stand 5 minutes. Brush with the remaining paste.
