When was the last time you made BRICK CHICKEN?
Never, oh perfect, well check out how I did it, and give it a try.
It's easy, fun, and oh so delicious.

First go get some fresh Organic Whole chickens.
Cut those birdies right down the back, along one side. 
Give it a good crack, and remove any insides.

The marinade I made was a a quick creation, that came along as I went, and was based on some leftover SALSA I had.

* 1/2 cup FRESH salsa with extra lemon juice.
* 1/2 bunch of cilantro
* 20-30 cloves fresh garlic
* 3 green chillies
* 1 tsp cumin
* 1 tsp spicy mustard
* salt

Blend this all together, and pour, rub, and tuck it in to every nook ,and cranny of the bird. Please adjust the heat, accordingly, we just like it hot !

Next you need to find some dang heavy bricks, cover one side in heavy foil, and place those birds on a hot grill. I placed mine with the cavity down first, Then turned them over skin side. When you do this, make sure you lower the flame, the skin, will burn, and the fat will flame. Keep on eye on it. 

I think I cooked my birds for about 20-30 minutes. You know you grill, just watch them, and never eat chicken unless all juices are running clear, and the meat is no longer pink. 

These were incredibly moist, tender, juicy, and hot. They had just the right tang, and left your mouth in a sizzle. Finger licking good.
I made a tomato onion salad, and served it with couscous.

Happy grilling!!

Check out my curry plants, they are still alive. I also have 3 orchids, I'm desperately trying not to kill. I really need to learn to take care of these things. They are so happy to be outside again, the cold winter months, locked in my house, almost put an end to them.  They are doing well, outside, being watered by fresh rain.

  1. that chicken sounds and looks so good

  2. The chicken looks amazing my dear! I have never heard of that before! I can't wait for the warmer weather and get the grill out again! I love to cook on the grill but it is buried under some snow right now. :( Your flowers are lovely!!

  3. Looks so tempting Bella... I have a dinner on Sunday I think I will go for it... Thanks for sharing
    Hope you will enjoy your visit if you can spare a little bit to see some napkin folds

  4. mmmm looks so good! :) And I LOVE cilantro! LOL I bet that chicken was amazing.. you need to live by me, because I dont really like to cook.. and you seem to do it very well! LOL

  5. My Mum and me made it once, after reading the German name for it- Platthuhn. I swear it sounds hilarious for (giddy, female, silly, irresponsible, childish, over- excited) Germans! We had so much fun, I can't begin to describe it. Believe it or not, we are STILL talking about Platthuhn, and it was easily 15 years ago that we made it!

  6. What a cool way to cook a chicken... looks scrumptious!! Will have to try for sure ( or maybe the hubby will...LOL... I am definitely not the cook in the family)!

In my spare time I enjoy cooking, and baking. In fact my mother and I have been making cakes for over 30 years. I also love gardening, traveling, and all things crafty. I struggle daily to keep my like organized, along with my never ending battle to keep the house clean. I adore my three kids MOST of the time, and can usually be found doing the mom thing from morning till night. I try to catch a few mommy moments, but those are hard to find in this wonderful life of mine. I am blessed and happy, and am thrilled you stopped by today :)
