Ingredients Needed

  1. 3 to 4 pounds (1.4 to 1.8 kg) of chicken (whole, split in half, cut-up
  2. broiler-fryer, or cut-up parts of your choice)
  3. cup (60 ml) lemon juice
  4. cup (120 ml) olive oil
  5. teaspoon salt
  6. teaspoon pepper

Cooking Instructions

Wash the chicken and pat it dry with paper towels.

Combine the lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper and stir them together well.

If you're using a whole chicken, rub it all over with some of this mixture, making sure to rub plenty inside the body cavity as well.

If you're using cut-up chicken, put it in a large resealable plastic bag, pour the marinade over it, and seal the bag.

Let the chicken marinate for at least an hour or as long as a day.

At least 1 hour before you want to serve the chicken, pull it out of the bag.

You can either grill your chicken or you can roast it in a 375F (190C, or gas mark 5) oven for about 1 hour.

Either way, cook it until the juices run clear when it's pierced to the bone.
