  • About This Recipe

    “A neat trick for BBQing the thighs is to place them in a wire BBQ frame used for fish, burgers etc then you can flip them all at once. Beautiful flavor, crisp skin Time does not include the marinade time. Serve as an appetizer then it serves 6Note: Themarinade timefor 2 Hours isnot included in the prep time.”

  • “This was the star of our BBQ. Lots of yummy flavours. I have tried to contact Bergy today re the method for the peppercorns, and I’m sure she’ll alter it. Personally, I crushed them and added them to the chicken when I added thegarlic, ginger and coriander.”

  • “Very good. Will be making this often.”

  • “The prep / cook time is deceiving…you need to add 2 hours for the fridge to marinate the chicken.Other than that, the recipe was great.I ended up baking the chicken in the oven 350 for 40 minutes and then seared it on the BBQ for about 5 minutes each side on high heat.VERY TENDER AND JUICY!got lots of compliments on this recipe from friends and family.I would probably use chicken breast instead of thighs.Just a personal preference.”

  • “This is some great grilled chicken!So flavorful, moist and delicious.I used boneless skinless breasts as that’s what I had on hand; my soy was sweetened so I didn’t use the sugar.Marinated for about 3 hours and really enjoyed – thanks for sharing the recipe!”
