Made this tonight. Was great. Going to try and add cumin next time. Think it would be a good addition

I really liked this recipe. I used dry thyme that is what I had on hand. I did halve the lemon juice to 1/4 cup, I only had 2 lemons. Everything else the same and I grilled the chicken legs. I marinated for 3 hours. They were very delicious. Thanks for the recipe I think I will try chicken kabobs with this.

My boyfriend is Lebanese and for a while now I have been trying to recreate the chicken that we often have at our favorite Lebanese restaurant. This recipe is the most authentic one I have tried so far. It was delicious. Thank you.
