Oh was this great! It looked so good when I took it out of the oven that I just had to take a picture of it!The Tang from the lemon juice was just perfect. Also this works great as a "dump" Recipe for OAMC. This was made about 3 weeks before I cooked it and defrosted in the fridge the night before.
I only had four hours to marinate the chicken but it turned out great. I love this spice blend. Next time I will let the chicken marinate overnight! Thanks.
We love this. We use a bit more garlic and bake it since we live in the city without a grill. Love the flavor, it's so unique.
