Marinades and barbecues are a match made in cooking heaven. Here is an impressive looking dish on the grill, to inspire you to fire things up – it’s a great choice when entertaining! This simple-to-make recipe by Alain James Grech of Chef’s Table won’t take much time and adds a flavour to your summer table that is truly unique!
1 small chicken
4 springs lemon thyme
30ml olive oil
Seasoning to taste
Grilled seasonal vegetables as a side dish
Spatchcock the chicken or ask the butcher to do it for you. Mix together the lemon thyme, olive oil, honey and seasoning and then rub the chicken all over with it. Leave for at least half an hour. Heat the barbecue, then grill the chicken for five minutes on each side (start on the topside for a great grilled look). Allow to rest for five minutes – this will ensure a juicy chicken. Serve with grilled vegetables and a mayo-based potato salad.
