We’ve perfected the basic grilled chicken recipe—and we’re not talking about just salt and pepper. This simple grilled chicken hits the table hot and destined for lemony, herby, honeyed, Dijon-infused glory. We made the recipe fitting for a whole chicken, which makes it ideal for feeding a family or ensuring there are plenty of leftovers to last all week. From there, all you need is a hard-working side dish to round out your easy chicken dinner. In our opinion, a quick side of lemony couscous with cucumbers, fresh mint, and parsley brings new life to any weeknight sideboard menu and pairs well with the flavor of the real star: juicy, perfectly cooked, delightfully charred chicken. Voilá! A grilled chicken supper that feels anything but boring. Test Kitchen Tip: You can prepare the couscous and marinade a day in advance, and chill. Add the remaining garlic-lemon mixture to the chicken an hour before you plan to grill it. Stir in the cucumbers, herbs, and extra salt just before serving.
