Grilled Citrus Olive Oil Chicken

 

Ingredients

  • 1 3½-4-pound chicken, cut into 8 pieces
  • 3 tablespoons UCR Fresh Citrus Collection Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
  • Kosher salt; freshly ground pepper
  • 2 lemons, halved
  • 2 oranges, halved

Preparation Description

Prepare a grill for medium heat. Rub chicken pieces with 2 Tbsp. UCR Fresh Citrus Collection Extra Virgin Olive Oil; season with salt and pepper. Grill chicken, skin side down, turning occasionally and squeezing juice from 2 lemon halves and 2 orange halves over often, until cooked through and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of thigh registers 165°, 25-35 minutes.

Meanwhile, brush remaining 2 lemon halves and 2 orange halves with remaining 1 Tbsp. of Citrus Olive Oil. Grill, cut side down, until lightly charred, 5-10 minutes. Serve chicken with grilled lemon and orange halves alongside for squeezing over.

Yield: Makes 4 servings
