Chicken under a Brick

This was one of my first tries with the Himalayan salt blocks (8x8x1.5), and it turned out delicious. The salt blocks are available at the Milwaukee Public Market and Evanston locations. As the salt blocks impart the flavor, try to stick with salt free or low sodium seasonings.



Begin heating the salt block to 500 degrees. Cut the backbone out of a whole chicken so it can be flattened. Start the grill (gas or charcoal). Brush the chicken with olive oil and season liberally. When the grill is ready, toss the chicken on, skin side down, and place the salt block on top. Should take about 30 minutes.
