Barbecue Style Mustard Chicken
|Chicken||3 1⁄2 Pound|
|Butter||2 Ounce, softened|
|Grain mustard||3 Tablespoon|
|Lemon rind||1 Teaspoon, grated|
|Lemon juice||1 Tablespoon|
|Chopped tarragon/Rosemary||1 Teaspoon|
|Ground black pepper||To Taste|
Joint the chicken into eight pieces and trim off any excess fat, leaving the skin on. In a bowl, cream the butter and work in the mustard a little at a time, using a wooden spoon. Add the lemon rind, then gradually beat in the lemon juice and the herbs. Season well. Spread the mustard butter over the chicken pieces, coating evenly.
Heat the grill and cook the chicken on the rack for 10 to 15 minutes on each side until the skin is crisp and golden and the chicken is tender. Some of the mustard mixture may slide off, in which case spoon it from the grill pan over the chicken when serving.
When cooking is done on a barbecue, keep back some of the mustard butter and spread it on the chicken pieces as they cook.
