Zankou Chicken specializes in a particular type of Armenian garlic 
broiled chicken.  This is the largest chain, although I am more partial 
to a smaller group called Sevan Chicken, also based in Glendale, which 
is a nexus of Armenian population.  More garlic.  Yay.  It's not the 
chicken that is so fattening, so much of the fat drips off in the 
rotisserie proces, it's the customary Mediterranean side dishes. 

Curiously, I'm having trouble finding a recipe for this kind of 
chicken.  How hard can it be?  Maybe it's one of those things that 
nobody's mother makes at home.  <moue of frustration>
