Thai chicken bbq ala Zan


Chicken portions (as many as you need). These are really cheap – bought two (with drumsticks attached for oz $4.15 yesterday).

4 cloves crushed garlic
2 teaspoons chilli paste (or chopped red chillis)
2 tablespoons each grated root ginger and chopped coriander
Grated rind of 1 lemon
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons each olive oil, white vinegar

Work a pocket under the skin of each piece of chicken,

Combine all other ingredients in a bowl and spoon some into each pocket.
Brush remaining marinade over the chicken, place in fridge for a couple of

Before cooking, bring chicken to room temperature.

Place skin side down on a medium grill/braai/bbq and cook for 20 minutes. Turn
halfway through cooking.

This chicken can also be cooked in the microwave first for about 6 minutes,
then finished off on the grill/braai/bbq until cooked through (about 5 minutes a side)

Serve with a lovely salad.
