This chicken gets the full treatment for maximum flavor: it’s brined overnight, then lemon slices and chopped rosemary are slipped under the skin before it goes on the grill. Caramelizing the lemon slices in a skillet sweetens their flavor and gives them a head start on cooking. When the chicken comes off the grill, the lemon slices are tender and sweet enough to eat straight.

The carmelized lemons were horribly bitter-the flavor spread to the chicken and it was not edible. The chickens were brined for 8 hours-they were plenty salty.
I have made this chicken so many times...although I used Thyme..as I am not a huge rosemary fan..EVERYBODY loves it...Make it...you won't be sorry!
Is salt flavored chicken desireable? If the rosemary is only a garnish, shouldn't the title convey that?Since it would not accept the rating without at least one star checked,I gave it one star. I guess that should be fair - the neighbor's dog did seem to enjoy my offering.
