This is a really delicious Middle Eastern recipe, and a change from the ordinary roast chicken. I think it may be a Donna Hay recipe. (several hours marinading time)

Very Good. This is the most tender and juicy chicken that I have ever made. I followed the directions exactly as written. After 60 minutes, I laid a piece of foil over the top of the chicken because the skin began to blacken. I marinated the chicken for 6 hours and a subtle yoghurt-onion flavor permeated the meat and juices. At first I thought the stuffing was too bland but a sprinkle of salt and the chicken juices changed my mind. I loved the crunch and nutty flavor of the pine nuts. DH put this on "his please make for me again" list, he ate half of the 3 1/4 pound !
