Grilled Greek Chicken


1 4-5 Pound chicken cut in halfMarinated Greek Chicken

4-5 Cloves garlic minced

2 Tbsp chopped fresh oregano

1 Tbsp chopped fresh rosemary

1 Tbsp chopped fresh thyme

Juice of 2-3 lemons

1/2 Cup olive oil

1 Tsp cracked black pepper

1-2 Pinches red pepper flakes

Combine garlic, herbs, lemon juice, olive oil, black pepper and red pepper flakes in a bowl and whisk together.

Make small slashes in the wings, legs and thighs of the chicken. Do not slice the breasts. Pour marinade over chicken and marinade from 8 hours to overnight.

Prepare a charcoal fire with the grate as far away from the coals as possible. We do not want the chicken too close to the coals because the fat drippings will cause flare ups burning the chicken.

Grill covered for approximately 30 minutes turning every ten minutes. My son and I ate the whole thing! This recipe is very easy and very gratifying. Do not over cook the chicken, we don’t like dry chicken!
