The best chicken you will ever eat

The best chicken you will ever eat

With a title like that, you just have to try this recipe.


1 whole chicken, cut into sections

2 Tbs fennel seed

1 Tbs paprika

1/2 Tbs sea salt

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1/2 Tbs oregano

1/2 Tbs chili flakes 

Juice of 1 lemon

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil


  1. Start by grinding your spices together. You can pop them in a mortar and pestle or just into a spice grinder for a few seconds.
  2. Add olive oil to the spices and mix.
  3. Pat chicken completely dry!
  4. Top each piece of chicken with the spice mixture and rub it in there. Get it in every nook and cranny you can see!
  5. Squeeze the juice of a lemon over chicken pieces.
  6. Grill outside for about 10-12 minutes per side. I use a thermometer to ensure each piece reaches 165F. Since you have thighs, breast, legs, etc the cooking times will vary slightly.
  7. I grill the lemon I juiced as well and squeeze it over the top of the chicken when done.

I serve this with baked potatoes that I slice down the middle, coat with olive oil and salt and then grill for about 5 minutes. Once done, I toss them in a few tbs of parmesan cheese and some fresh herbs. I used basil and parsley for this.
