Grilled Lemon Chicken: Easy on the cook for Easter


Around here, mid-April Easter means the first sightings of the spring bulbs.

It also means bright fresh colors, chickens, eggs, lemons and fresh herbs, all things that make us think of spring.  Chocolate too, it goes without saying.

It's a wonderful time for those early veggies too.  Asparagus may not have as many loyal followers as chocolate but it’s always welcome here.  Spring also brings out the grill, which has been covered with snow most of the winter.  

We find that entertaining for traditional celebrations or for any event has become more casual, relaxing and whenever possible, make-ahead.  Because we want to be outside looking for blooms or courting mallards, we need to cut time in the kitchen.
