Barbecue season might not quite be here yet where we live, but we know it is some places and the anticipation of good grilling weather is just about enough to get our mouths watering before we’ve even fired up anything up. That’s why we’re always on the lookout for delicious grilled chicken recipes! Don’t get us wrong, we’ll eat just about anything grilled (even if it’s made stovetop and not directly on the BBQ), but chicken is our absolute favourite dish to prepare this way.

4. Grilled butterflied chicken
To “butterfly” a chicken is a technique that requires removing the backbone and flattening the whole chicken, open and down the middle. This means you’re grilling a wider surface area of the chicken, so you get more of that deliciously crispy texture you love so much. Get a better idea of what we mean by taking a look at Serious Eats! They show you how to season it subtly but scrumptiously as well.
