C)..."over five thousand years ago" modifies the act of preparing and so it must be as close as possible to it.

Archaeologists have discovered that Mesopotamian cooks were preparing chicken with coriander and tamarind, just as Egyptian cooks are still doing today.

putting a comma after that , over five thousand years ago, allowes to provide additional information.

putting a coma after discoverd would mean that discovery was done over 5 thousand years ago.

so C is the right answer.

I vote for C

because here much caution is advised, since the other sentences change the meaning. Archeologists have NOT discovered over 5000 years ago, but over 5000 years ago, mesopotamian cooks etc etc
