Notes

Expert Tips
  1. Allow chicken to marinate at least 30 minutes and up to 1 day in advance for best flavor. Discard marinate after use.
  2. Use dried herbs and seasonings that are in date. Herbs with expired dates will be less flavorful.
  3. If available, a heavy iron skillet will easily produce a brown crunchy crust.
