If you like garlic then you will probably love this chicken recipe! This is a really simple way to cook chicken that’s really flavorsome, moist, and tender. You can use any pieces of chicken for this recipe in place of the whole chicken.

Ingredients

Servings 4-6 | Units US

1 (3 lb) broiler-fryer chickens
6 -8 garlic cloves
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1⁄2 cup olive oil
1 lemon, juice of
1⁄2 teaspoon sumac

Directions

  1. Grind garlic & salt to a paste in mortar or small food processor. Work olive oil, sumac & lemon to create creamy consistency – similar to mayo.
  2. Cut chicken into 6 to 8 pieces. Make plenty of deep cuts – right down to the bone.
  3. Place the chicken pieces & garlic sauce in a large ziploc bag. Close the bag massage the chicken for a few minutes before placing in the fridge for at least 3 hours – I like to marinate it for about 6 hours.
  4. Grill the chicken pieces over a medium heat until the juices run totally clear, 12 – 15 minutes per side. I often grill it on my griddle / grill pan then transfer to the oven on 200 C for 15 minutes.
