    Helen Ganim's Note:

    I put this together when I was making some other Lebanese dishes, and I wanted chicken, but wasn't sure how I was going to make it. So this is what I came up with. One of the ingredients is Sumac- can find in middle eastern markets for sure. Its a dark red spice, that adds a lemony flavor. Its so very good. I like to make this chicken and serve it with Tabouli and Hummus. But I think it would be great with just about anything you choose to serve it with.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 2-3

    Yield:

    breasts ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      If chicken breasts are boneless and thick, I think they turn out better butterflied.
    2. 2
      Peel garlic and crush using a mortar/pestol with a little salt (makes crushing garlic easier) or buy garlic already crushed and place in a small bowl.
    3. 3
      Add lemon juice, olive oil, and sumac, and salt if you bought crushed garlic.
    4. 4
      Mix together.
    5. 5
      Place chicken in ziploc bag, add mixture from bowl. Make sure chicken is coated, seal bag and then place in refrigerator.
    6. 6
      I think it tastes best when marinated for at least 4 hours. But I 'm sure less is fine too.
    7. 7
      Grill chicken until done.

      Wonderful marinade that I left overnight on bone in chicken thigh and breast. I chopped my garlic very fine and squished it a little since my garlic press went to the trash. It was not too garlicy after sitting a long time however I did wipe off some of the garlic prior to putting under the broiler since that is what I was worried about. I served it on top of Rice With Onion (Mashkoul) with Taboule & a cucumber yogurt mint "salad" as a sauce for the rice. It was a delicious meal. I may make this again.

      GREAT MARINADE! I love the taste of lemon so used 3 generous tablespoons of it along with 5 large garlic cloves (love that stuff, too!) & had the breasts in the marinade for almost 8 hours! Made for some WONDERFULLY FLAVORFUL CHICKEN! A very nice keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game]
