  • To Taste Your Favorite Chicken Rub

PREPARATION

Steps

1

In a small bowl, combine butter, scallions, garlic, minced fresh herbs, Z Grill Chicken Rub and lemon juice. Blend well with a wooden spoon.

2

Remove any giblets from the cavity of the chicken. Wash the chicken inside and out with cold running water. Dry thoroughly with paper towels.

3

Sprinkle a generous amount of Z Grill Chicken Rub into the cavity of the chicken.

4

Gently loosen the skin around the chicken breast and slide in a few tablespoons of the herb butter and cover evenly. Smear the outside of the chicken with the remaining herb butter.

5

Tuck the chicken wings behind the back. Tie the legs together with butcher’s twine.

6

Sprinkle the outside of the chicken with more Z Grill Chicken Rub and insert sprigs of fresh herbs into the cavity of the chicken if desired.

7

When ready to cook, set Z Grill temperature to 400℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

8

When grill is hot, place chicken directly on the grill grate, breast side up. Cook for 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until the internal temperature registers 165℉. If the chicken is browning too quickly, loosely cover the breast and legs with foil and continue to cook.

9

Remove from the grill and let rest 15 minutes at room temperature before carving. Serve. Enjoy!
