Chicken Under a Brick

Oven baked chicken bricks that's great for the Abs Diet.



  1. Rinse and dry the chicken breasts, then sprinkle them with the salt, pepper, red pepper, garlic, and rosemary.
  2. Place them in a baking dish, pour on lemon juice and olive oil, and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour.
  3. Wrap each of the bricks in aluminum foil. Brush the grill with a stiff wire brush.
  4. Dip a paper towel (folded into a small square) in oil and, holding it with tongs, rub it over the rods of the grill to oil them.
  5. Then place the chicken at a 45-degree angle to the rods and put the bricks on top.
  6. Cook over high heat for 4 to 6 minutes per side, reorienting each breast every 2 minutes for a crosshatching effect.
