Method:

Grill

Ingredients

1/2 c
olive oil
1/3 c
freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 c
soy sauce
3 clove
garlic, peeled and minced
1 tsp
fresh oregano
1 tsp
fresh rosemary
1 tsp
fresh basil, optional
1 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
pepper or lemon pepper
4 lb
chicken, split broilers
olive oil spray

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Wash chicken and place both halves in a large ziploc bag.
2
Squeeze lemon juice; add zest for extra flavor.
3
Combine remaining ingredients with the lemon juice and place in bag.
4
Refrigerate for several hours (up to 6 hours), turning occasionally.
5
Place chicken on broiler rack, skin side down or on grill; keep chicken about 7 inches away from heat.
6
If grilling, set chicken on opposite side of the coals to avoid flare-ups.
7
At start of cooking, brush chicken with marinade - then discard marinade so that you're not tempted to use it during the cooking (for safety's sake).
8
Note:
For extra flavor, sprinkle chicken liberally with salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder just before cooking. Substitute lemon pepper for the black pepper, if available, for an extra zesty kick.
9
Broil or grill chicken for 20 minutes or until browned on one side, avoiding flare ups.
10
At this point, spray the chicken lightly with olive oil spray; then turn it to the other side and spray again.
11
Cook for another 10 minutes or so until chicken is done (juice no longer runs pink).
12
Variation:
Wine vinegar may be substituted for the lemon juice. If fresh herbs are not available, substitute 1/2-3/4 teaspoon dried.
13
Serve garnished with sprigs of rosemary and a lemon wedge.
