Whole Grilled Chicken
Feeling a little adventurous, I bought a whole chicken the other day.
Well, NOT a whole chicken, complete with feathers, feet and beak! No, no, no. A whole chicken in the meat section of the grocery store.
See, I generally buy boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs so this purchase of a whole chicken was a change in my normal routine.
I had been toying with the idea of making “Beer Can” chicken because it sounded like a fun thing to do!
Jeff was skeptical that I could prop the chicken up on the beer can without a special rack made just for that purpose.
He was probably right, but I didn’t want to admit it.
So I marched forward with my plan . . .
I started my online search for beer can chicken tutorials/recipes and found several articles which made a lot of sense to me, like this one from Naked Whiz.
Based on the results of Naked Whiz’s tests, I scrapped the idea of beer can chicken (for the time being) and opted to butterfly and grill the whole thing. And I used this awesome Seasoning Recipe too.
Easy. Juicy. Tender. Tasty. Amazing!
What more does one demand from their chicken?!
We have these “chicken shacks” here in Italy that make the best rotisserie chickens.
This butterflied grilled number rivals those we buy at the chicken shacks.
I’m quite pleased and hope you like it! Definitely give the Seasoning Recipe a try — I think it’s the seasoning that really helps to make this chicken so deliciously exceptional!
