Berber Chicken

READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by Barb R

A really spicy and delicious Middle Eastern/African chicken dish. I marinated this chicken overnight and removed it from the marinade a few hours before cooking to dry the skin so it would turn out crisp. Preparation time does not include marination or "chicken drying" time. It's great with a fruited rice.

Most delicious and aromatic! I added some peppers and onions to the spicy juices oozing from the chicken, not to waste those wonderful flavors. Could add other veggies too, like pumpkin or green beans etc...
