Grilled Chicken with Peaches & Rocket Dressing


This delicious grilled whole chicken with sweet peaches and a tangy rocket dressing will blow your guests away.



Step 1:
Preheat a barbecue grill (with hood) on medium heat, with hood closed. Pat chicken dry with paper towel. Place on a chopping board, breast-side down, with the cavity facing you. Using kitchen scissors, cut along both sides of the backbone and discard. Open out chicken. Turn over. Press down with the heel of your hand, to flatten.
Step 2:
Combine butter, lemon zest and garlic in bowl. Season. Run your finger between chicken skin and flesh on breast and legs to create a pocket. Push half of the butter mixture under skin. Gently rub skin to evenly distribute butter.
Step 3:
Cook chicken, skin-side down, on greased grill for 5 minutes or until skin is golden and crisp. Turn. Dollop with remaining butter mixture. Close hood. Cook for 50 minutes or until cooked through and golden. Transfer to a plate. Cover loosely with foil. Stand for 10 minutes to rest.
Step 4:
Meanwhile, while chicken is resting, add peaches to the grill, cut-side down. Cook for 4 minutes or until lightly charred.

Step 5:

To make rocket dressing, place rocket, basil and parmesan in a small food processor and blitz until finely chopped. While the motor is operating, add oil and lemon juice in a slow, steady stream.
Step 6:
Cut chicken into portions and arrange on a serving tray with peaches. Serve with spinach and drizzled with dressing.
