This roasted chicken recipe is slightly adapted from Casa Moro, I think any combination of hot spices with the preserved lemon makes a delicious roast . Leaving the chicken to rest after roasting means you can use the combined chicken and roasted lemon/spices to make a tart gravy with crunchy bits of roasted spices.
Preserved lemons are one of my favourite ingredients , delicious with meat, fish & in salad and one of those wonderful things to make yourself. It takes only a few minutes and a lot of salt . I keep a large jar in the fridge
