It's summer at last! Time for barbecues, picnics in the park and delicious food you can enjoy whilst sizzling in the sun or relaxing in the garden.
My favourite recipe for this time of the year is barbecued chicken. I have invented my own sauce for this.
This sauce is very easy to make and it does not require precooking. You just have to make sure that you marinate the meat in it in the fridge for at least 3 hours before cooking. This is to allows the chicken to absorb all the flavours of the spicy sauce. The following recipe serves 4 people.
The ingredients you will need are:
4 cloves of garlic finely chopped.
3 tbs olive oil
3 tbs tomato puree double concentrated
1 tbs honey
2 tbs hot water
1 tbs water
1 tbs dry parsley
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
some chili powder
Circa 800 gr Chicken thighs or other parts you prefer.
Mix the ingredients to make the sauce and stir until they are fully blended.
Wash the chicken and discard any excess fat. Remove the skin if you prefer.
Place the chicken into a bowl and fully cover with the sauce.
Cover the bowl with cling film and place it in the fridge.
Leave to marinate for at least 3 hours or overnight.
Grill for 30-40 minutes.
