Whether you want to impress at your dinner parties, picnicsor just in need of healthy protein bits for your salad, you want to have the yummiest chicken barbecue there is out there. While almost anyone can throw some chicken breasts, thighs or even the coveted wings into the flames and serve, the proof of the proverbial pudding is in the eating. Here are some fail-safe tips to make your chicken barbecue the ultimate best ever:
- Flavour your chicken before you grill. White meat doesn’t necessarily translate tasteless meat. Preferably get your chicken to marinade for a few hours or better still, overnight in the fridge.
Avoid high heat as this will just burn your chicken without cooking it through. You will even be rewarded with a bitter taste for your troubles. You want to cook it on medium heat and keep it covered to create heat that will cook it evenly.
Baste the chicken often and especially at the end of your grill. However, do not baste too soon into your grill, about 15 minutes before the chicken is cooked works best to avoid burning.
• ½ cup olive oil
•1 teaspoon sea salt
• ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
•½ teaspoon paprika
• ½ teaspoon cumin
•Red bonnet pepper (as much as you can handle)
• ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
•3 cloves garlic chopped (you could add more or less)
• 3 tablespoons chopped onion
•½ cup chopped fresh parsley
Pour oil into bowl and mix together salt, pepper, paprika, cumin, and cayenne pepper. You could blend and add garlic, onions, and chopped parsley. Mix ingredients well with a whisk. Pour marinade over the chicken in a Ziploc bag. Remove as much air as possible from the bag and seal. Turn the bag from side to side and sort of squish the chicken and ingredients together and massage the marinade into it to make sure the chicken has been coated with it. Keep turning the bag over every few hours to keep the chicken coated.
