Ingredients

  • 1 whole chicken
Marinade 
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh tarragon, chopped
  • 6 fresh thyme twigs, leaves only, chopped
  • 6 fresh oregano twigs, leaves only, chopped
  • 1/2 cup of lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup of Dijon mustard
  • 6 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar

Steps

  1. Slice the chicken in half.
  2. Combine all marinade ingredients.
  3. Add the chicken to the marinade (in a sealable bag or container), then refrigerate for a minimum of 8 hours and a maximum of 48 hours.
  4. Fire up the barbecue to medium heat, regulate around 400 °F.
  5. Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill for an hour, turn occasionally. If the chicken seems to be burning, move it to the higher grill.
