Chili and Lime Grilled Chicken

Serves 6 to 8
Time 2 hr 40 min
This simple marinade is full flavor and is perfect for grilled chicken. "Spatchcock" refers to the method of splitting a whole chicken down the middle, removing the backbone and skewering the meat for easy turning on the grill. Ask your butcher to do this for you, or carefully do it at home on a sturdy cutting board.
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup cumin
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic
  • 2 whole chickens, spatchcocked

Method

Whisk together oil, lime juice, cumin, chili powder and garlic in a large, shallow dish to make a marinade.

Arrange chickens in dish and rub all over with marinade, then cover and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours, turning occasionally.

Turn grill on low to medium heat.

Remove chickens from marinade, allowing any excess marinade to drip off.

Arrange chickens on grill, skin side down and cook, flipping occasionally, until deep golden brown and cooked through, about 30 minutes. (A meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meat should register 180°F.)

Transfer to a platter to let rest briefly, then serve.
