    STORY BEHIND THE DISH
    Stonefire Grill half lemon garlic chicken lunch special please! At least one Thursday a month this delicious meal is a must. It also helps that Stonefire Grill is so close to my house I can smell it, literally, when I open the door. I wanted to recreate this dish but since I know how time consuming a fill roasted chicken can be, I went the easy route & used a boneless skinless chicken breast instead.  


    MODIFICATIONS 
    You can use this same recipe roasting a whole chicken or legs if you prefer dark meat. I love roasted garlic but you do not have to use an entire bulb especially if you pair up this dish with delicious Garlic Roasted Mashed Potatoes.
