Spicy Lemon Chicken
Look for small fryer or broiler chickens on sale in your supermarket. You will often save as much as 25 percent. Cut the extra chicken into pieces and wrap in plastic wrap before freezing.
1/2 cup butter or margarine
3/4 cup lemon juice
2 Tbsp garlic salt
2 tsp cumin
2 Tbsp cayenne pepper
2 lb chicken
1 Tbsp salt
1/2 Tbsp pepper
Preheat grill. Melt butter in a small saucepan. Add lemon juice, garlic salt, cumin and cayenne pepper; stir. Pour 1/2 of marinade into a resealable plastic bag.
Pierce chicken in several places. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place chicken in prepared bag; seal. Turn occasionally to coat.
Place chicken skin side up on grill rack. Brush with 1/2 of reserved marinade.
Grill chicken until cooked through, turning and basting occasionally with remaining marinade, about 55 minutes.
To speed up the cooking time, cut the chicken into individual serving pieces. Or you can buy the chicken pre-cut in 8 pieces. You can save about 20 minutes of cooking time with smaller pieces of chicken.
