Farareej Mashwi (Broiled Chicken
with Oil, Lemon and Garlic Sauce)




  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. In a shallow dish filled with a mixture of garlic, lemon juice, oil, and parsley, roll the chicken quarters to coat them. Allow to marinate at least 1 hour.
  3. Heat the broiler.
  4. Drain the chicken, reserving the marinade. Set the broiling rack about 7 inches from the heat. Place the quarters, skin side down on the broiling rack, and broil 10 minutes, basting often with the cooking juices and a little of the marinade.
  5. Turn the quarters over and broil the chicken 10 minutes longer. Turn and brush twice more until both sides are golden brown and crusty. Pour over the remaining oil mixture.
  6. Serve at once.

Serves 2.
