How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat a gas grill or light a charcoal fire. On a work surface, press down on the chickens so they lie flat. In a small bowl, combine the oil with the garlic, lemon zest and a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Rub the oil all over the chickens.

Step 2    

Grill the chickens over very low heat, turning occasionally and brushing with the lemon juice, until lightly charred and an instant-read thermometer inserted near the thigh joint registers 165°, about 40 minutes. Cut the chicken into pieces and serve.
