Sumac Marinated Chicken Thighs

Marinade

½ cup  Olive Oil
2 tbls. Sumac
Salt  and black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and place chicken on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes or until done.


* Sumac - Sumac is considered essential for cooking in much of the Middle East; Sumac has a very nice, fruity-tart flavor which is not quite as overpowering as lemon. Flakes from the berry are a lovely, deep red color which makes a very attractive garnish.
Sumac can be purchased from the
