Bobby Flay’s Rosemary Bricked Chicken for #SundaySupper – Supper for a Steal

This week’s #SundaySupper theme is, your favorite celebrity chef. Now it is super hard for me to pick just one. I was debating about 7 different chef’s whose recipes I wanted to try, but then on Thanksgiving we ordered a new grill from Lowes (a Christmas present from my inlaws, thanks! We love it) and I knew I needed to do a grilling recipe on it.

Rosemary Bricked Chicken - Supper for a Steal

Who better to turn to than the king of grilling, Mr. Bobby Flay. I searched through all his top recipes on the FoodNetwork.com to find one that didn’t require 5 million ingredients, you know I like to keep things simple. Finally I found this Rosemary Bricked Chicken. Five ingredients (not counting the salt and pepper) and I had most of them at home already.

I did make one slight change to the recipe and that was, instead of using whole butterflied chickens I just used chicken leg quarters, skin on.  They are typically on sale for $.99/lb and I didn’t want to butterfly a whole chicken myself.

The flavors of the dish were perfect. I’m usually one to peel off the skin, but I actually ate most of this because it was just so delicious. I know in many parts of the country it’s probably not grilling weather, but with nights in the high 60’s it is perfect grilling weather here. Keep this one in your file until it warms up!
