Garlic Grilled Chicken

Serves: up to 4 | Cooking time: 45 minutes

Developed by Brooklyn Supper, exclusively for Farmer Focus!

The recipe is at its best when the spice rub has time to fully penetrate the meat. If possible, work ahead so the rub can sit on the chicken overnight.


Dry Rub

  • 1 whole chicken, giblets and neck removed

  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed, peeled, and finely minced

  • Zest of 1 lemon

  • 2 1/2 teaspoons sea salt, divided

  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1 teaspoon spicy paprika

  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Honey Butter

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 1 teaspoon (sweet, spicy, or smoked) paprika
