Have you never cooked a whole chicken on the grill before? Start with our Whole Barbecued Lemon Tarragon Chicken. It takes about 40 to 60 minutes, but unlike roasting, it bastes in its own juices, so just let it cook itself on the grill while you prepare side dishes or chat with guests.
The trick to cooking perfect grilled chicken is to use a method called indirect heat, which means placing the chicken over an unlit burner so that the fat doesn’t flare up and burn while cooking. The results are juicy and tender meat, just like the rotisserie-style chicken you get in restaurants.
And speaking of rotisseries, if you have one for your barbecue and haven’t tried it yet, why not give it a whirl? Prepare the chicken using the recipe below, but use the manufacturer’s instructions for threading it onto the rotisserie and setting it up on your barbecue. The cooking time may vary slightly. Enjoy!
