Bricked Rosemary Chicken with Lemon

Submitted by: AEOLIUS

Introduction

A Tuscan classic! The brick technique ensures a crisp exterior with a moist and juice interior. The sprinkling of lemon zest and herbs keeps it tasting fresh. Butterflying the chicken is an easy procedure with the right knife or pair of kitchen shears, but you can always ask a butcher to do it for you. A Tuscan classic!
