Oh my! Both BF and I loved it! This tender, juicy and oh-so-flavorful chicken is going to make regular appearances around here. I used the 'rosemary' option (simply because I have rosemary and basil in my kitchen garden) and can not imagine better results in the flavor department. The chicken 'spatchcocked' beautifully (I was so impressed with my efforts there!) and the technique for grilling a whole bird is nothing short of genius! I marinated for about 6 hours. I will say, my grilling skills need some work and I DO plan to perfect those skills if only to make this recipe over and over again....but despite the flare ups and the charred appearance of my poor, spatchcocked chicken.....this was one tasty bird! Thank you so much for sharing the technique and the amazing pesto marinade recipe. I tagged this for Photo Tag, so must post a picture or two...please excuse the sad exterior of my bird. When I make this next time - and there WILL be a next time - I will try to do a better job of keeping him out of the flames and post a better photo!)
