Mediterranean Chicken

To be honest, I’m not sure if this is more Greek or what — the recipe is based on something I whipped together while sniffing the spice mix and trying to decide what else to add.



Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 30 minutes

Feeds four

The way I test for doneness is to check the joint between the leg and thigh. If that joint “falls apart”, you’ve overcooked the chicken a little bit. Also, since you’ve removed the spine, the leg and thigh may fall away from the rest of the chicken as you remove it from the grill. That’s okay, and it saves you some cutting, too.

The salt and pepper proportions in the recipe are what I start with. I find that many people like their chicken a little saltier, but you definitely don’t want to overdo it. You can always add a little more salt later, but it’s impossible to take it out after the fact.
