Moist Grilled Garlic Whole Chicken



Yum



Very flavourful n citrusy chicken...



Ingre:
 
1 (4 pound) whole chicken
olive oil or butter (as ur wish) for basting
salt and pepper to taste
1 large lemon, sliced
6 cloves garlic, sliced
6 sprigs thyme( I didn't use as I didn't hav any)

Method:

Season the chicken with salt and pepper, stuff with half of the lemon slices n garlic, and place breast side up in the middle of the parchment paper
(using parchment paper minimizes after cleaning process).

Place the rest of the garlic n lemon slices beneath the skin (use ur finger to make space between the skin n meat).

The chicken has to be marinated minimum for 8 to 12 hours.
 
Preheat oven to 165 degrees C.

Bake in the preheated oven until the chicken has cooked, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

A meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of the thigh should reach 180 degrees.

To get crispier skin shift the chicken to the top most rack ( near the grill and turn to grilling mode for just 5 mins).
 
Enjoy...
