One of the ladies in my mother's group made us this chicken on the barbecue for lunch one week. We all loved it, and I am putting her recipe here for safe keeping. Chris suggests making extra as they are excellent cold, too! They are very easy to make. Cook time includes time to marinate in the fridge.
- 8 (100 g) skinless chicken thighs (Chris uses "chicken chops" which are trimmed thighs with one main bone left in for a "handle")
- 1 medium onion, chopped fine
- 75 ml dry cider or 75 ml white wine
- 75 ml low sodium soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 1 teaspoon mustard powder
- 1 large garlic clove, crushed
- 1 tablespoon soft brown sugar
- black pepper
- Put all the sauce ingredients into a large bowl and add the chops, turning to coat.
- Leave to marinate in the fridge. The longer the better -- overnight is terrific, but just a few hours is good too.
- Cook on a HOT barbecue 15 - 20 minutes, turning once or twice, and basting them with any sauce left in the dish.
- Or you can cook them in the oven on about 200 for slightly longer -- say 20 - 30 minutes.
This was pretty good but I did make a couple of slight alterations-not really by choice ;-) Russ decided he needed some chicken bones for crab bait, leaving me with fillets for this ( I only marinated them for 4 hours). Also, when I went to make this I discovered we had no soy sauce. I was forced to use the sweeter, saltier kechap manis, so used a reduced amount of that. Good flavours in this and I will make it again "properly" soon.
Really good!! I think this would be an ideal chicken dish to take to any BBQ. It has a really interesting taste that is not too mild but also not too strong and I think just about everyone would enjoy.
I've just returned from a BBQ and I took some chicken drums marinated in this recipe, would love to give it a personal rating put it was all gone by the time I got to the head of the queue, so my sons said it was brilliant.
