The aroma should be irresistible. The outside should be crisp, the inside juicy. We’re talking about one of America’s most popular foods — grilled chicken. But how many times does the outside look perfect while the inside is perfectly raw? Or you’re simply left with a smoldering, charred mess?

Award-winning cookbook authors and America’s outdoor grilling experts, Cheryl and Bill Jamison come to the rescue in Chicken on the Grill.

The Jamisons identify the most common mistakes in grilling chicken and, most important, teach you how to correct them.

Their advice and expertise make it easy to enjoy perfectly tender, juicy chicken that is bursting with true flavor only grilling over a fire can impart.

With more than 50 color photographs throughout, Chicken on the Grill is as much a feast for the eyes as it is for the table.

There are 50 inspiring ideas for boneless, skinless breasts, plus recipes for wings, sandwiches, and satays. Since man can’t really live by chicken alone, there are recipes for sides and sweets such as Rockin’ Guac, Grilled Asparagus with Orange Zest, and Frozen Margarita Pie.

Emril at the Grill by Emril Lagasse.jpgEmril at the Grill by Emril Lagasse

If you know Emeril, you know that he always takes cooking to the next level. And when it comes to grilling, that means that instead of hamburgers he’s making Pork and Chorizo Burgers with Green Chile Mayo.

Instead of corn on the cob, he’s got Grilled Corn with Cheese and Chile. Anyone can grill a chicken, but only Emeril would come up with Northern Italian-Style Chicken Under a Brick (yes–a brick ). And while we all love peach pie, how about Grilled Peaches with Mascarpone and Honey?

You’ve never grilled like this before.

The 158 recipes in this book are easy, fast, and make every meal a party. And why should grilling happen only in the summer? “Emeril at the Grill” is full of techniques for both indoor and outdoor cooking, so you can keep the party going all year round. From drinks (Watermelon Margaritas) to meats (Grilled Marinated Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce, anyone?), from salads (Watercress, Avocado, and Mango Salad) to desserts (ever grill a banana split?), this is a grilling book like no other.
