Grilled Citrus Chicken Under a Brick Recipe 2010-05-13 14:16:28

Ingredients

  1. 1 cup fresh orange juice
  2. 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
  3. 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  4. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  5. 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh oregano
  6. 3 teaspoons salt, divided
  7. 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh rosemary
  8. 1 garlic clove, chopped
  9. 1 whole chicken (about 3 3/4 pounds), neck and giblets removed, butterflied
  10. 1 teaspoon Hungarian sweet paprika
  11. 1 teaspoon black pepper
  12. Nonstick vegetable oil spray
  13. 1 1/2 oranges
  14. 2 foil-wrapped bricks or 1 cast-iron skillet

Directions

  1. Whisk juices, olive oil, oregano, 1 teaspoon salt, rosemary, and garlic in glass baking dish. Add chicken to marinade. Turn to coat; chill 2 hours, turning occasionally. DO AHEAD: Can be made 1 day ahead. Keep chilled.
  2. Mix remaining 2 teaspoons salt, paprika, and pepper in small bowl.
  3. Spray grill rack with nonstick spray. Prepare barbecue (medium heat).
  4. Slice 1/2 orange into 1/4- to 1/8-inch-thick slices. Remove chicken from marinade; pat dry. Loosen skin from chicken breast and slide 1 to 2 orange slices between skin and breast. Loosen skin from thighs and slide 1 to 2 orange slices between skin and thighs.*
  5. Rub paprika mixture over both sides of chicken.
  6. Place chicken, skin side down, on grill. Place foil-wrapped bricks or cast-iron skillet atop chicken (if using bricks, position 1 brick over top half of chicken and 1 brick over bottom half). Cover and grill until skin is crispy and brown, about 15 minutes.
  7. Remove bricks or skillet. Using tongs or 2 large spatulas, turn chicken. Replace bricks or skillet and cook, covered, until chicken is cooked through, about 20 minutes longer. Let chicken rest 10 minutes.
  8. Meanwhile, place whole orange on grill and cook until slightly charred, turning often, about 1 minute. Cut into wedges and serve alongside for squeezing over chicken.*

Serves 4.

*When I made this chicken, I ran out of oranges and did not place any under the skin. Nor did I serve grilled oranges alongside. However, it was still wonderful!
