I use a whole chicken, jointed into 10 pieces with bone in and skin on for this recipe.
The marinade itself is very simple and though it might sound like an awful lot of garlic it really works!
The sugar in the sweet chilli sauce acts the same way as honey in the marinade so you get a blackened appearance but it still tastes great.
1×1.8-2kg whole chicken jointed or 10 chicken pieces, with skin and bones in
5 garlic cloves, crushed
3 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
juice and zest of 1 lime
2 tablespoons olive oil
Combine the garlic, sweet chilli sauce, olive oil and salt in a large bowl.
Add the chicken and, using your hands, rub the marinade well in.
If you have time, allow to marinade for a few hours.
Preheat the barbecue to medium or preheat a non stick frying pan.
Put the chicken, skin side down on the BBQ or frying pan and cook for 10mins, turn and continue cooking for 30-40 mins, turning regularly until cooked through.
