1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp grated lemon peel
1 tsp minced fresh thyme

Using a fork, prick the skin of each piece of chicken. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the lemon juice, oil, parsley, onion, garlic, lemon peel, thyme, salt and pepper; add chicken. Seal bag and turn to be sure all pieces of chicken are coated. Refrigerate 6 to 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally. Drain and discard marinade. Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat for 35-40 minutes or until juices run clear. Turn every 15 minutes while grilling.

In a large bowl, mix together potatoes, cheese spread, onion, and mayonnaise. Place mixture into a baking dish that has been sprayed with vegetable oil spray. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour. Remove from oven and crumble bacon over potatoes before serving.

Place beans in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring beans to a boil and cook, uncovered, until tender--about 8 to 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a skillet, saute sesame seeds in garlic and oil. Drain beans and stir into mixture in pan. Season with salt as desired.
