    1. In a small jug or bowl, combine lemon juice with the dry ingredients for the marinade. Stir well and set aside to thicken slightly.
    2. Skin the chicken portions and score the meat on both sides (score legs on the inside joint between drumstick and thigh. This enables you to more easily see if there is still any blood/pinkness near the bone as you near the end of cooking time).
    3. Coat each chicken portion liberally with the marinade. Place in tightly covered dish and marinate for at least 4 hours (preferably overnight for maximum flavour).
    4. Place on BBQ for apprx 40 mins or until chicken juices run clear. Brush liberally with vegetable/olive oil and turn frequently to avoid burning.
    5. Serve with pitta bread and salad.
