Very mild and pleasant, will use more Recipe #492862 next time. My NA*ME neighbor said that Recipe #492975 would be more typically Omani, but she took home a large container of rice and chicken for her dinner tomorrow night. I bought the smallest chicken I could find, but the roaster took 1 1/2 hours; I think it would have been tastier had I used my Showtime rotisserie to baste the chicken as it cooked. Made for Please Review My Recipe.
