    Leslie in Texas's Note:

    A taste of the Mediterranean! Moist, flavorful chicken is the star of this elegant dinner - serve with Tunisian carrot salad and Turkish zucchini pancakes. Serves four very generously, or split the chicken halves to serve eight!

      We loved the flavor imparted by the lemon, garlic, thyme, paprika, cumin and cayenne pepper marinade. Baking this easy to make Lebanese style chicken at 425°F results in a very moist chicken with a crispy skin. I used bone in breasts marinated overnight. There was very little pan juice to baste with because some of it carmelized around the edges of the pan. I think next time I might add a bit of water to the pan, halfway through the cooking time. I served this with Leslie's Tunisian Carrot Salad for a wonderfully enticing dinner. Leslie, I am so lucky I chose you for " Pick A Chef"
