When I first read this recipe I loved the idea but not the style. Putting a whole chicken on the grill has not been successful for me so I adapted and put the bird on the rotisserie spit. The chicken turned out wonderfully. The meat was juicy and very flavorful. Pretty simple to put together and you can easily use a food processor if you don’t have a mortar and pestle.
- 3 scallions, white ends only, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, peeled
- 1 tbsp. ground coriander
- 2 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 1⁄2 tsp. sweet paprika
- 1 pinch hot paprika
- 1 1⁄2 tsp. ground cumin
- 1⁄4 cup butter, soft
- 1 chicken
Crush the scallions, garlic, coriander, parsley, salt, sweet paprika, hot paprika, and cumin with a mortar and pestle. Blend in butter.
Wash chicken; rub inside and out with butter paste. Let stand at least 1 hour.
Preheat grill, then cook the chicken using the rotisserie until meat is cooked through.
