Easy Rosemary Roasted Chicken

Here is an easy recipe for those long, busy days when you don’t feel like jumping through hoops to make dinner. It’s amazing how well this marinade works in just an hour or two, and the grilling couldn’t be simpler. Roast the chicken pieces over indirect heat until fully cooked and then roll them around over direct heat for a few minutes to brown them.
Prep Time
15 minutes
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 whole chicken, about 4 pounds, neck, giblets, wing tips, and any excess fat removed
  1. In a small bowl whisk together all the marinade ingredients.

  2. Cut the chicken into six pieces: two breast halves, two whole legs (thigh and drumstick), and two wings. Brush each chicken piece on both sides with the marinade. If you have time, marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for up to 4 hours. If not, you can roast the chicken right away.

  3. Prepare the grill for direct and indirect cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F).

  4. Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the chicken pieces, skin side down, over indirect medium heat, with the lid closed, until fully cooked, turning once or twice. The breasts and wing pieces will take 30 to 40 minutes and the whole legs will take 40 to 50 minutes. During the last 5 minutes of grilling time, move the chicken over direct medium heat and cook until well browned all over, turning once or twice. Remove from the grill and let rest for 3 to 5 minutes, then serve warm.
