1/3 cup Lemon juice***

1/3 cup Lime juice***

Briefly simmer the cut-up chicken in a deep-sided skillet, keeping pieces

in single layer without crowding them, until the meat appears milky white

and the juices run clear, no longer pink. Allow to cool in the broth,

uncovered, while you prepare the basting sauce. Arrange the chicken pieces

skin-side up on broiler pan in single layer and baste with enough of

mixture to evenly coat skin side. Turn and baste other side. Turn again to

skin side up and broil 6" from the heat, brushing with additional sauce

every few minutes until skin is really crispy and golden brown,

approximately 5 to 8 minutes for large pieces. BASTING MIXTURE-Mix juices,

oil, turmeric, salt and pepper. This makes enough to baste nine pieces.
