Marcella says "In Rome they call this the devil's chicken because of the diabolical quantitiy of the crushed black peppercorns that are used."
I just call it delightful!
Grilled Chicken alla Diavola ~ Roman Style is a wonderful way to grill a chicken. Marcella goes into detail about getting a whole chicken and having it flattened to cook it on the grill. I was in a bit of a 'workin' full time, cook it in a hurry' bind (y'all never find yourself in that situation do you?) I used chicken breasts... and they were great! The chicken is well coated with coarsly ground black peppercorn and then marinated for 2 hours in a mixture of olive oil and lemon juice. The freshness of the lemons and the bite of the pepper makes this a recipe I will do again and again! I can only imagine this aroma with grilled salmon or pork chops. The daibolically perfect recipe.
