A Greek chicken dish that works well grilled/broiled or on the BBQ. Not yet tried (times are estimated) but it's on the menu this week...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat the grill/broiler to high.
  2. Put the chicken breast-side down and cut along the backbone. Turn the chicken over and press down firmly to butterfly it.
  3. Heat the olive oil and 30g of the butter in a frying pan.
  4. Add the chicken, half the lemon juice and season well with salt. Cook until both sides are crispy and the chicken is just cooked through.
  5. Place the chicken on a baking tray and pour over the remaining lemon juice, dot with the remaining butter and sprinkle with oregano.
  6. Pour 125ml (1/2 cup) water around the chicken and grill/broil on both sides until the skin is crispy and deep golden.
  7. Pour a little more water around the chicken and grill for a bit longer so that you have some sauce.
  8. Cut the chicken into pieces to serve.
