 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1                    broiling chicken - halved -- 3-pound
      1/4  cup           Italian parsley
                         Lemon Sauce:
    2      cups          fresh lemon juice
    1      cup           olive oil
    1      tablespoon    red wine vinegar
    1 1/2  teaspoons     garlic -- minced
      1/2  teaspoon      dried oregano
                         salt and pepper
 
 1. To attain maximum heat, preheat broiler for at least 15 minutes before
 using.
 
 2. Broil chicken halves, turning once, for about 30 minutes or until skin is
 golden-brown and juices run clear when bird is pierced with a fork.
 
 3. Remove chicken from broiler, leaving broiler on. Using a very sharp knife,
 cut each half into about 6 pieces (Leg, thigh, wing, 3 small breast pieces).
 
 4. Place chicken on a baking sheet with sides, of a size that can fit into the
 broiler. Pour Lemon Sauce over the chicken and toss to coat well. If
 necessary, divide sauce in half and do this in two batches.
 
 5. Return to broiler and broil for 3 minutes. Turn each piece and broil for an
 additional minute.
 
 6. Remove from broiler and portion each chicken onto each of 6 warm serving
 plates.
 
 7. Pour sauce into a heavy saucepan. Stir in parsley and place over high heat
 for 1 minute. Pour an equal amount of sauce over each chicken and serve with
 lots of crusty bread to absorb the sauce.
 
 To make lemon sauce:
 
 Whisk together juice, oil, vinegar, garlic, oregano, and salt and pepper.
 Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Whisk or shake vigorously before
 using.
 
 Serves 6.
