I somehow ended up on Martha’s site the other day looking for recipes on the grill. Yes, yes, I know it’s fall people, but I love my grill and use it whenever I can, even in the snow! I printed off oodles and oodles of different recipes, but settled on this mouth watering marinated chicken as my first pick. I am so very glad that I did! Not only did I savour every morsel at dinner that night, I had it for lunch the next two days and used the rest to make a chicken salad. This marinade is so simple it’s almost embarrassing. With only four ingredients this marinate gives the chicken an amazing flavor that you will absolutely love.
I will admit though, after cooking from Julia Child’s book, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, I’ve learned a few things. One of those lessons include drying off the meat before cooking it, and if marinated, to wipe off the excess marinade first. Other than that, Martha’s instructions are pretty much dead on. Instead of oiling the grates of my grill, which has melted a few brushes in the past, I brush a little olive oil on the dried chicken so it won’t stick. I also marinated my chicken in the refrigerator most of the day, and then an hour and a half before cooking it, I placed it on paper towels and brought it to room temperature.
As for the potatoes, I’ve also learned to dry those, so after patting them dry they went into the foil packet as described below. I was really surprised at how perfect they were!
Try this. You’ll thank me. And when the snow flies, just keep a shovel near the door and scoop a path to your grill like I do ;)
