      A perfectly balanced marinade, flavored by lemmon, garlic, cumin and black pepper with a hint of soy and sugar. We loved the way it added flavor without interfering with the barbequed chicken taste. I doubled the garlic (a vampire warning had been issued that evening) and had to substitute a bit of red wine vinegar for some of the lemon juice. My only suggestion would be to add more cumin if you are marinating for only an hour. DH says I will be making this often. Thank you Dorothy!

      Very good chicken. I did on my Holland gas grill, which is more like an outdoor oven than a grill. I will try again soon on my charcoal grill. I did leg quarters and they turned out tender and moist. The skin was crunchy. Just the why I like it. While no way over powering, the lemon was the dominant flavor. I was out of olive oil so I substitued peanut oil.
