    Ty for sharing this recipe and ty so much for your blog . Is there any special way you wash the chicken , I remember my aunt soaking it in vinegar and water but have heard salt water is the way to go to rid it of smells and such ? And is a monkey dish like a Pyrex?

      I just looked up monkey dish , it’s a small bowl to mix the spices in . Then place all in oven safe dish . Sorry , but if you could still give us any tips on washing chicken ?

    • Hi! Thank you for stopping by! I washed the chicken with a sprinkle of flour and then I rub and squeeze a lemon on the inside and the outside and then I leave it like this for about half an hour and at the end I wash it with water and dry it with paper towels. The monkey dish is any small bowl will be just perfect. Have a good one!
