Hot Moroccan Grilled Lemon Chicken
Ingredients to Serve- 4
  • 6 medium Lemons
  • 6 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons Olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 teaspoons Coarse salt
  • 2 2 1/2# Chickens,cut in half
  • 6 large Mint leaves,torn in half
  • 12 whole Green olives
To Prepare the Marinate: Zest two lemons. Cut the lemons, and squeeze the juice from all into a small bowl. Whisk in the garlic, oil, red pepper flakes and salt. Place the chickens in a low pan. Pour the marinate over the chickens. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

To Grill on a BBQ: Prepare hot grill for indirect cooking. Pile the hot coals on 2 sides of the bbq. Place a drip tray between the piles and set the grill on top about 6 inches from the heat. Position the chickens skin side up over the drip tray. Close the top of the bbq and cook. After 5 minutes open the lid and baste the chickens with marinate, re-arrange chickens, but do not turn over. Continue to cook for a full 1 hour, basting each 10-15 minutes, until the skin is crisp and golden brown.

To Serve: Remove the chicken from the grill. Place on a large platter. Garnish with torn mint leaves, reserved lemon zests and green olives.
