Grilled Split Chicken


I love this recipe.  It is so easy to make and absolutely delicious. Goes well with grilled zucchini. 



1 Cup Olive Oil

1 Cup Black Olive Tapenade

2 Sprigs Thyme

1 Tablespoon Freshly Ground Pepper


Split a while chicken in half.  In a large size bowl combine the olive oil, tapenade, pepper and thyme.  Take the split chicken pieces and soak both sides in the olive oil mixture.  Keep the chicken in the olive oil mixture, marinating, for 2 to 4 hours or overnight.  Cover and place in the refrigerator.  Prepare your grill and remove the bowl of chicken.  Let the chicken sit out for 15 to 20 minutes and throw away the olive oil marinade. Place on the grill and cook on each side for 20 minutes.  Remove from the grill and transfer to a serving platter.  Serves 2
