Lemon, garlic & ginger butterfly chicken


-1 x Bird & burrow naked free range chicken

-2 TBSP grated lemon zest

-1/4 cup olive oil

-2 TBSP fresh chopped thyme

-1 TSP onion powder

-1 TSP freshly grated ginger

-1 TSP salt

-1 TSP cracked pepper

1-Lightly Rub a light amount of salt & pepper on the butterfly chicken, before basting generously in the lemon, garlic & ginger mix.

2-Pre heat oven or BBQ to 180 degrees Celsius and cook your chicken for 50 mins, basting both sides at the 15 min & 30 min mark heavily. If you are doing this on a BBQ make sure you are not cooking over direct heat, move the chicken slightly away from the flame or hot coals to avoid burning the skin.

3-For added crispy skin turn your oven to grill and cook for a further 3-4 mins with the skin side up. BBQ users move your chicken on top of the fire/coals and face the skin side down for roughly the same time before serving.
