Add lemon juice on top and once again mix the chicken, using your hands, to let everything come together
Keep the marinated chicken aside in the fridge for at least an hour and to let the chicken get juicy and flavourful from the inside as well
Prepare the chicken:
Preheat the grill and brush it with oil to avoid the chicken from sticking to the grill
Get the marinated chicken out from the fridge and place it on the grill
Apply oil on top of the chicken pieces before putting them inside the griller - Wait for 5 minutes or until the time the chicken has attained a crispy brown layer on the outside - Now flip the chicken and wait for it to grill on the other side as well - Once the chicken is done on both the sides, take it off the griller
Transfer the grilled pieces to a serving platter.
Squeeze juice of half a lemon on top and sprinkle freshly chopped rosemary.
Place few slices of lemon on the side and serve hot.
Even though the grilled chicken is a meal in itself, you can also serve it with the sides of mashed potatoes and freshly prepared green salad or salsa
You can also serve the chicken with tortillas or pita bread with different kinds of dips on the side for an international food experience within your four walls
