Simple Home-cooked Recipe: Delicious Whole Grilled Chicken

Whole Grilled Chicken
Sharing is caring!

Remember I had shared how to make fantastic grilled chicken wings earlier in a post here? Well, the marinade is almost similar for this great-tasting Whole Grilled Chicken, which will be devoured down to the last scrap. 

Once again, my trusty old turbo broiler came into good use for this Whole Grilled Chicken. With it, the cooking and cleaning processes are so much easier. You can get your own Turbo Convection Oven here.

This means your main role is just to butterfly the chicken and get the the marinate correct and leave the Turbo Convection Oven or a regular oven to do its job!
