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 Grind garlic and salt to a paste in mortar or small food processor. Work olive oil، sumac and lemon to create creamy consistency - similar to mayo.
Cut chicken into 6 to 8 pieces. Make plenty of deep cuts - right down to the bone.
Place the chicken pieces and 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.
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.
