Score the chicken
Using a sharp knife, make four long incisions in each of the chicken quarters.
Make the marinade
In a large bowl combine the lemon juice, garlic, mace, paprika, cumin, cayenne, turmeric and half of the oil. Season with salt and pepper and mix well.
Marinate the chicken
Place all four quarters into the marinade and stir thoroughly to give each piece an even coating. Marinate for at least an hour but up to a maximum of six. If you do decide to marinate for more than an hour, cover and place the bowl in the fridge.
Barbecue the chicken
Place the four quarters on the barbecue and grill for fifteen to twenty minutes, turning every five or so minutes to cook evenly. To prevent the flames from rising too high and burning the chicken, splash a little water every now and again on the grill.
If barbecue has lid, close it to speed up the cooking. When the chicken is cooked through, remove it from the barbecue and return to the kitchen.
Make the salad
Add the tomatoes, onion, chopped parsley, oregano, sesame seeds, lemon juice, and remaining oil to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix well.
Serve the chicken and salad with a crusty bread to soak up any juices and enjoy!
