Barbari Charga by Shireen Anwer


  1. Chicken (breast or leg quarters with skin) – 6 pieces
  2. Lemon juice – 1/2 cup
  3. Red vinegar – 1 cup (apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar)
  4. Garlic head – 1
  5. Olive oil – 3/4 cup
  6. Salt – 1.5 to 2 teaspoons
  7. Arabic 7-Spices (or black pepper) – 1 teaspoon
  8. Ground cinnamon – 1 teaspoon


  • In a bowl sprinkle then rub ground cinnamon on raw chicken rub with half a cup of vinegar for a couple of minutes and then rinse well with cold water.
  • This will help rid the chicken of any smell.
  • Make cuts in chicken pieces (for marinade to seep through).
  • In a blender or food processor, grind/crush for 3-4 minutes the garlic along with the lemon juice, red vinegar, salt, and spices.
  • Once done add the olive oil then run the blender for 1 more minute.
  • Your marinade is now ready.
  • Place chicken in a bowl add a few lemon slices (with peel) pour marinade on and let sit in the fridge overnight.
  • The longer you marinate the chicken the more flavor it will have.
  • Once ready for cooking don’t throw away the leftover marinade, you’ll need it later.
  • Grill the marinated chicken on a BBQ as you would other chicken on low to medium heat for about 20-25 minutes.
  • In the first 10 minutes of grilling, brush the leftover marinade on the chicken occasionally so they stay moist and absorb more marinade flavor.
