Marinated Chicken


Here is a tasty marinade for chicken which I used on some chicken thigh fillets for my birthday bash on the weekend. The chicken was lovely, tender & the blend of sweet tangy marinade flavours plus Michael’s superb char grilling powers made this great for any Barbie. Note the recipe from Women’s Weekly Great barbecue Food specified chicken wings which I ditched for thigh fillets, sometimes I’m just not in the mood for chewing on a lot of bones to get a little meat! As you can see from the photo, there was a lot of meat being grilled to perfection & the pic doesn’t even sow half of it! Guess what I’ll be eating for the rest of the week?

Marinated Chicken

1.5kg chicken wings (I used about the same weight in thigh fillets)
1 cup (250ml) tomato sauce
½ cup (125ml) plum sauce
¼ cup (60ml) Worcestershire sauce
¼ cup (50g) firmly packed brown sugar
2 cloves of garlic, crushed

Combine all marinade ingredients in a bowl, stir, add chicken, stir to coat. Cover & refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight.

Drain chicken & discard marinade. Grill on barbecue or griddle pan until cooked through (about 40 minutes on barbecue).
