Serves 4

1 3lb (1350g) whole chicken
3 tsp (15 ml) salt
1 tsp (5 ml) lemon zest
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tbsp (15 ml) fresh thyme
freshly cracked pepper to taste
8 Dutch baby potatoes, halved
1 tsp (5 ml) olive oil
1 tsp(5 ml) fresh rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
4 lemons, halved

Remove the backbone from the chicken with kitchen shears. Pat dry and set aside.

In a small bowl combine salt, lemon zest, garlic and thyme to form a “salt rub”. Rub the chicken all over with the rub, including under the skin of the breasts. Place in a large casserole and cover. Refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours.

Before grilling, slice potatoes in half and toss with olive oil, rosemary and salt and pepper. Slice lemons in half, horizontally. Brush with vegetable oil to avoid sticking and to encourage grill marks.

Before grilling, oil grates with canola or vegetable oil to prevent sticking. Heat grill to medium high.

Grill chicken skin side down. Place potatoes beside the chicken cut side down.

Grill chicken for 17 mins on skin side and then flip and grill on the other side for 15 mins.

Meanwhile, potatoes can grill at the same time, flipping occasionally to assure even browning. If they get too brown, remove from heat and keep warm on the upper rack .

Once chicken is flipped, place lemons on grill cut side down and grill until nice char marks form.

Once done transfer chicken to a large platter. Place potatoes all around, garnish with grilled lemons and fresh thyme.

  1. Beth, this recipe is so good for summer. I love chicken and making in a grill is super easy like i see!!! I adore all of those marks on the potatoes and over the chicken, so much flavour!!!!!

    Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

    Enjoy your summer,


  2. Holy Smokes…….absolutely love this grill recipe ! This chicken looks amazing, thanks so much for sharing Beth, love your summer outfit….nothing like white and blue together, take care XO

  3. Where do you buy you're clothes ? You always look so good , it's it Michael kors , Gucci , dolce and cabana , I don't my sister to dress like you so I need the brand to buy gift cards for presents !

  4. love your recipes and how well you explain them! Question for you Beth: I didn't see you use any oil/butter for either the chicken nor the potatoes, only the lemon. Don't you need that so it doesn't stick to the grill?

  5. Fantastic, and may go very well on my restored 1960's open hooded charcoal brazier. It's so different than using the gas grill we have. Last weekend I made rotisserie game hens on it, and they looked great, but were raw on the inside! You're recipe I might try on our vintage charcoal, but more likely on our gas grill.

  6. How would you recommend cooking this without a grill? They look fantastic and the grill looks impressive although in the UK I doubt we would be able to utilize it enough take yesterday for example it said a 10% chance of rain for the day and it poured down, oh well. Thank you for being a cooking inspiration. Jade x

  7. Yes, I have been looking for more grilling recipes! I live in Florida and you can imagine how hot and humid it is here, and my parents don't want me using the oven because it heats up the whole house. Lol.

  8. Hi, adorable Beth. That lemon chicken looks absolutely beautiful like you. You are truly a wonderful YouTube cook with easy preparation time in your cooking and baking. What makes a cooking video fun and creative? Have a good day, adorable Beth. I am glad you're making my request next month and mentioning my name in the video. ???
