Double Delicious Grilled Chicken

Another delicious dinner! This is an absolute favorite summer meal. The chicken is so, so succulently excellent: tangy, herby, and mouth-watering. The pre-cooking marinade makes it delightfully tender and seasoned, but then the post-cooking marinade introduces all the fantastic and fragile flavor component -- the herbs and citrus zest and garlic -- that would have burned off on the grill. Also, since you slice up the grilled chicken, you maximize the flavor-absorbing surface area. You will be a hero to your family and dinner guests. Seriously.

Every home cook needs a great roast chicken recipe up her sleeve. Not only is this one beautiful to look at, but it fills your home with the most amazing aroma of garlic, lemon and rosemary. Larger chickens typically have more flavor than the tiny broilers and often times you can get more than one meal out of them. Saving the carcass for making broth is also a great idea, if you are having a Martha moment. The garlic becomes tender and sweet and is wonderful spread on some crusty French bread.
