A citrus spice marinade is made from olive oil, cumin, salt, oregano, garlic, lime juice and orange juice. It is used to marinate a chicken before being roasted. Serve with mashed potatoes or in sandwiches.
Lovely flavour and enoyed by whole family - 19 Feb 2011
I made this recipe and used a whole chicken instead of chicken parts. A visiting friend commented that the smell of the marinade was savory and made her hungry. The chicken marinaded for about five hours and that was enough to suffuse much of the meat with garlicky-sweet flavor. The browned bits of seasonings on the skin was a big plus. This fed my family, including picky children, without any complaint, only compliment! I did serve with rice, but could see how with mashed potatoes and turning the pan drippings into gravy it would've been excellent too. - 25 Sep 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
We thought this was pretty good. I cut back on the cumin a bit and added a little chile powder and cayenne pepper. I don't think it needed quite so much oil. It was a bit greasy. When I make this again, I'll use less. Thanks for the recipe! - 28 Sep 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
