  • Rinse the chicken pieces and pat dry. Trim off excess fat.
  • Combine the spices for the marinade. Set aside 2 teaspoons and mix the rest with the lemon juice. Rub into the chicken and marinate in the refrigerator for up to 1 day.

  • Lightly brush a large ovenproof dish with the remaining oil. Scatter the torn bread along the bottom. Sprinkle the remaining chicken stock over the bread.

    I made this recipe from a website about three months ago and it's the best chicken dish I have ever made hands down. I'll be making it again soon and will post pictures! My friends loved the way the bread tastes with all the seasoning. I don't use chicken quarters, but rather leg quarters.
