BBQ Smoked Chilli Mayo Marinated Chicken

This marinated chicken recipe is a really delicious and interesting idea to use our Gran Luchito Chipotle Mayo . Blended with oregano, cumin, garlic and fresh lime, it’s a really tasty marinade perfect for Summer barbecues. We’d recommend trying to get a bit of char on the chicken by brushing on the remaining marinade as it cooks, and encouraging flames to lick the chicken. Be careful not to burn it however by turning and moving around regularly.

How to make it

  1. Trim excess skin from the thighs.
  2. Mix rest of ingredients into a marinade and place chicken in to soak, ensure it is well coated.
  3. Leave the marinated chicken for anywhere between two and eight hours.
  4. Remove thighs from marinade and shake off any excess.
  5. Grill over a high heat until the chicken is at least 75C. Thighs are actually quite forgiving unlike chicken breast so you can cook them thoroughly without them drying out. Also they are much more tasty than breasts!!!
