Recipe by Chef John
"The next time rain ruins your dream of a grilled chicken dinner, I hope you fire up your broiler and give this easy, alternative method a try. Not only are you getting the same intense, direct heat, but you also have more control, since you can adjust how far the chicken is from the flame. I prefer the meat about 7 to 8 inches under the heating element, but feel free to adjust as needed. Garnish with freshly squeezed lemon juice and fresh oregano."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (3 pound)
whole chicken, cut in half, backbone removed
salt as needed
This was SO GOOD and so easy to make. I added a little bit of fresh cracked black pepper and a pinch of rosemary. Lunch was awesome. Thanks, Chef John.
This was great AND easy. I used drum sticks and thighs. Added a little pepper with the salt. Very tasty, easy and well received by all!
