    Scots Lass/Cairo's Note:

    This recipe is extremely simple to prepare. However, in order to achieve a perfect result, I recommend that you marinate the chicken for 24 hours. It really does make a difference to the flavour. This chicken dish is lovely served with rice and a spinach yoghurt salad.Borani Esfenaj.

      I made this for my boyfriend who is from Egypt and he really loved it. He told me that it was very authentic and tasty. I could only marinate for 8 hours and I baked them at 375 for 40 minutes, it was GREAT, thanks for the recipe!!!

      Simple and worked well for the older chicken I had to use up, gave it a nice flavour and covered the stronger flavour that the chicken had. I served this with rice with sharia and a fresh salad with sumaq and a yogurt cucumber salad with freshly squeezed lemon juice. Good combo. I may make this again.
