      We preapered this chicken cooking it 20 minutes in the oven (350°F/180°C) and finished on natural wood charcoal for about 10 minutes! It was really yummy and easy to prepare.
      I kept aside the juice produced in the oven and served later with the chicken from fire.
      The juice was too delicious with lemon and oregano, It would be a pity to throw this away!
      It came out juicy and tasty. Great recipe! Thaks a lot Pat!

      This chicken was delicious! I've never met a chicken halve that I cooked on the grill that I didn't love! I did add some salt and pepper before throwing on the grill, after spraying with oil. I served with white barbecue sauce. Wonderful dinner!
