    Default Recipe: Persian grilled chicken/marinade

    x-no-archive: yes

    Wendy, I think this would work very well with fish, especially oilier
    ones, perhaps. Thinking bluefish in season, for instance. I can't wait
    to make it on the grill, but it's been very cold both nights I had this
    prepared, so I roasted it at 450 degrees. You could roast it a little
    lower, then broil when almost done, to crisp up the skin instead.

    I made it both with and without the saffron... little difference, but
    very delicious both ways. I thought it was great for Cornish hens, but
    Tom has an aversion to them (a size thing more than taste, it seems,
    because he loves it when cut into little pieces as jujeh kebab.

    Costco has whole organic chickens for $2.69 per lb, sold in pairs, so
    I'll give this a workout this winter.

    PERSIAN-STYLE GRILLED CHICKEN
    Marinade:
    1/4 cup (30g) plain full-fat yogurt (I used Fage 2%)
    1/2 cup olive oil
    4-6 cloves garlic, minced
    Juice from 1 lemon (about 1/4 cup, 60ml)
    2 tsp. cumin powder
    1/2 tsp. saffron threads, soaked in 2 TBL. water (optional)
    sea salt
    ground black pepper

    1 whole chicken, backbone removed, quartered, and wing tips removed
    1 lime, quartered

    Combine marinade ingredients in glass bowl or zipper bag. Add chicken,
    and combine well, massaging marinade under skin and into joints. Cover
    or zip up, and let marinate at least 8 hours, and up to 3 days.

    To prepare to grill, remove chicken from refrigerator about 30 minutes
    before it is set to go on the grill (i.e., while the grill is
    pre-heatting or the charcoal coming up to cooking temperature). Make
    basting sauce.

    Basting Sauce:
    Juice of 1 lime (about 2 tsp.)
    3 TBL.. unsalted butter, melted
    sea salt
    ground black pepper

    Combine ingredients and blend well to dissolve salt.

    Remove chicken from marinade and discard marinade. Place chicken on
    grill, skin-side down first. Turn over and baste liberally. Grill until
    each piece runs clear when cut near the joint, basting each time the
    chicken is turned. Remove fully cooked chicken from grill, and
    immediately squeeze lime juice over.

    Might well be nice with fish . I am always astounded at teh lack of
    onions in Persian recipes. It seems so strange an ingredient to not use.

    Whenever we order jujeh kebab from the local Persian place, it comes
    with grilled tomato, grilled onion, green pepper, summer squash... I
    think they're in some of the more stewed dishes, but I can't swear to it.

    I forgot to mention that I don't quarter the chicken, I just butterfly
    or spatchcock it. I used to remove the breast bone, but now I just
    press down on it with the heel of my hand to crack it so I can flatten
    the chicken.

    Curry is so good, too!

    The lime juice baste and squeeze really brightens this dish a lot.

    I feel it is because they tend towards more sweeter dishes than savoury.
    I may be wrong but Persian food to me seems more based on spices for
    flavour.

    I didn't write that, so I'm assuming you're asking me?

    When I read it, I had very immediate, visceral reaction against the
    thought, and I really like duck.

    It might be very good, but it strikes me as bad. It's wonderful with
    game hen and chicken, but I don't think I'd like it with turkey or duck,
    which are considerably gamier... Only thing I can suggest is googling
    around to see if there any recipes for duck breast using
    yogurt/lemon/garlic marinade or basting. epicurious.com, maybe?
