Prepare and Bake the Chicken

  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius (375 degrees Fahrenheit).

  2. Prepare a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Lay the chickens down flat on the sheet pan.

  3. Place two hands on the top of the chicken over the breast bone. Apply pressure until you feel the breast bone crack, allowing you to lay the chicken completely flat.

  4. Use your fingers to gently separate the skin from the flesh.

  5. Rub preserved limes and garlic directly onto the flesh. Sprinkle in some black pepper, and then replace the skin so that as little flesh as possible is exposed.

  6. Drizzle olive oil over the top of both chickens. Sprinkle paprika and a little more black pepper over the top.

  7. Place in the oven and cook for about 45 minutes to an hour until the chicken is golden brown and the skin is crispy!
