Baste it & Taste it Greek Chicken
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 3 cloves mnced garlic
- 1 tsp coarse salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 2 tsp dried oregano (preferably greek oregano)
- 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
- Chicken pieces
- Fresh Rosemary stems tied together to make a basting brush
Whisk all ingredients (except chicken and fresh rosemary) in a bowl to make your basting sauce.
Grill chicken pieces on low/medium heat and constantly brush the sauce onto the chicken using fresh rosemary stems. While grilling - be vibilant; there is a lot of oil in the basting sauce and you can easily lose your chicken to flare-ups. Don't stray too far and keep the heat directly under the chicken to a minimum.
Remove chicken and garnish with fresh rosemary. Serve with a huge greek salad, some fresh pita and a galllon or two or retsina.
