Chicken pieces coated in a lime, lemon, garlic and turmeric flavored sauce and broiled until crisp on the outside, juicy on the inside. This dish is very easy to make but extra delicious. Serve with a green salad and mashed potatoes.
Preparation time: 10 minutes, Cooking time: 25 minutes, Serves: 4 


2 to 3 Tbsp olive oil
1 whole chicken cut in pieces or 10 to 12 chicken pieces (skin on)

For the basting mixture
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup lime juice
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp ground turmeric
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
Salt and black pepper to taste


In a saucepan or skillet over medium high heat add the olive oil and brown the chicken pieces for 10 to 12 minutes, turning a few times, until the juices run clear; do not overcrowd the pan, brown in several batches if necessary.

In another bowl mix all basting ingredients and stir well to combine.

Place the chicken pieces skin side up in a single layer on a broiler pan, and brush with the basting mixture. Turn and coat the other side and turn again, skin side up.

Broil in the oven (keeping the chicken about 6 inches from the heat) until crispy and golden brown, turning every 2 minutes and brushing with the basting mixture.

Serve with mashed potatoes, vegetabgles and a green salad.
