Farrouj Meshwi - Lebanese Garlic Chicken

45 mins (prep 20, cooking 25)
7 ingredients
4-6 servings
If you like garlic then you will probably love this chicken! This is a really simple way to cook chicken but it's really flavoursome & the chicken is moist & tender. You can use any pieces of chicken for this recipe in place of the whole chicken. In summer this is great on the BBQ. 'Farrouj' means male chicken in Arabic - they are said to be tastier than the hens but you can use any chocken with great results! Time to make doesn't include the 3 hours in the fridge.
