  1. Place all the ingredients, except the chicken pieces, into a large bowl and mix well. Place the chicken pieces into the marinade and cover with cling film. Leave to marinate in the fridge for at least an hour, preferably overnight.

  2. When you are ready to cook the chicken, prepare a barbecue grill, allowing the flames to die out before you begin cooking.

  3. Remove the chicken pieces from the marinade and place straight onto the barbecue grill. Turn and baste them regularly with the marinade for about 40-50 minutes, or until completely cooked through and ready to serve.

Recipe Tips

This marinade can also be used for whole firm white fish. However, use 6 shallots, 6 garlic cloves and ½ knob ginger (about ¼ thumb). Marinate the fish for about 30 minutes and then place them in a barbecue fish cage and then on the grill. Turn the fish and baste with the marinade regularly for about 10-15 minutes.
