The heat of summer can challenge this strategy though. Who wants to heat their kitchen up by roasting a chicken in the oven when the temperature is hovering around 90 degrees outside? Not me. One way to keep the heat outside is to roast the chicken on your gas grill. Let's see how to do it, shall we?
Grilled Roast Chicken with Lemon and Rosemary
|Lemon Rosemary Chicken Ingredients|
- 1 4-5 pound whole chicken, washed and patted dry
- olive oil
- 1/2 lemon sliced thinly
- 3-4 sprigs fresh rosemary
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
Preheat your gas grill. Chop the leaves of one stalk of rosemary finely and mix it with the salt and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.
I like to used a heavy pan for cooking on the grill. For the roast chicken I use a 13 x 9 inch enameled cast iron baking dish. Place your chicken in the pan. Pour a generous amount of olive oil over the chicken. Using your hands rub the olive oil all over the chicken. Slip your fingers under the skin on the breast and legs of the chicken. Slip slices of lemon between the skin and the breast.
