      We loved this. I served it with Lemony rice pilaf (also by Lennie). The chicken was lovely and tender and very tasty.

      I have made this many many many times!! I am Portuguese and this is one of our signature dishes! I recommend marinating it for a long time - the longer the better! Now to make it a real portugese traditional meal, serve this with thin french fries, white rice made in the oven with chicken broth and a green salad with tomatoes and onions. Trust me, you'll love it!! This can also be made in the oven, but it does taste better on the BBQ.

      The chicken was very flavorful. I first doubled the marinade and took half and rubbed it under the skin of the chicken and poured the other half over the chicken and marinated for 24 hours. I made a third batch (without red pepper flakes) and my husband brushed it over the chicken as it grilled. Very, Very good!
