Step 1

Wash chicken well and bind tightly with butcher's string.

Bunch thyme and bind it like a little smudge stick. Stuff under the string used to bind the chicken.

With your fingers, massage the unsalted butter into the skin of the chicken.

Sprinkle the sea salt over the chicken and rub into all the cracks and crevasses.

Place in fridge for about an hour to allow the salt to penetrate the skin.

Heat BBQ to 350°F. Place chicken in a baking dish lined with foil, cover and place on grill. Cook for about and hour and a half or until it is no longer pink inside.

Remove from grill and allow chicken to rest for about 5 minutes covered. Carve and enjoy!
